Love it! Tastes amazing! But, just as a side note, if you're a beginner at canning, apples don't set the same way strawberry or other jams set. It won't be solid, even after the cans seal themselves. Apples have too much acid to set solidly. I learned that from my sister-in-law after I questioned her about the texture of this jam. Thanks for such a great recipe!

This was a very easy and flavorful recipe!! I used strawberries instead of apples. I also used my food processor to chop the fruit (I don't like big pieces). I simmered the fruit with only 1 1/2 cups of sugar for about 1 hour instead of 20 minutes. The end result turned out great. I will definitely make this recipe again!

This was truly good. I tweaked this a bit as I used 4 cups rhubarb and 2 cups apples and it was lovely. yum. It made about 6 cups so only about 4 jars of jam.
