I always wanted to try making jam at home. I still remember the Papaya Jam my grandfather used to make and bring it for us while he visited us. I came across the recipe for this Apple Jam in Tarla Dalal’s book, Microwave Snacks and Desserts. I kept postponing the making of the jam until I was forced to one day when I ran out of jam and I wanted to eat toast and jam like, right now. This is made with ingredients readily available at home and can be made in a flash.
1 and 1/2 cups apples, peeled and chopped (I grated the apples)
1/4 cup sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
a pinch cinnamon powder
1. Combine the apple and sugar in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on High for 2 minutes
2. Remove from the microwave and add the lemon juice and cinnamon powder. Mix well and microwave on High for 21/2 – 3 minutes
3. Cool and store refrigerated in air-tight container.
