Microwave Apple Jam

As I said previously, thanks to blog events, we are able to put our hand in so many new recipes. But, the satisfaction when we prepare them perfectly is unsurpassable. Here is one such recipe I have never even tried to make, but made it perfect for the first time. Hey! I am talking about the Apple Jam here!

I wanted to contribute for the wonderful event, “Putting Up” being hosted by Rosie of “Rosie Bakes a ‘Peace’ of Cake” and Pixie of “You Say Tomahto, I Say Tomayto”. It’s an event about Jams and Preserves. So I searched and searched and landed on this easy Jam recipe. I chose this recipe for two reasons: I have many apples at home and easily done in a microwave.
Here is the recipe.

  • 2 Apples (any kind)
  • 1 ½ cups Sugar
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice


Peel, core and chop apples into fine pieces.

Combine apple and sugar in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes until apples are tender.

Take out from the microwave and beat apple mixture with electric mixer until well blended.

Microwave on high again for 3-4 minutes until the mixture becomes thick. Stir once during the cooking time.

Then finally stir in the lemon juice. Pour into prepared jars, seal and refrigerate.

Apply on bread slices and enjoy!

Hi Uma,
Thanks for visiting my blog.
I just recently brought some books from the lib to try out some jams and jellies that use spices.
There is nothing like a homemade jam, right?
Nice post.

the jam looks delicious. am not a great fan of apples though- probably will give it a try with strawberries or pineapple. like the layout of your blog- very clear, distinct and easy to read.

Hi Uma,

Ulma, I am sorry but here is a warning to all- i tried this jam, and it went awful. i did exactky what the directions said, instead, for my results, i got thick, non spreadable awful tasting jam. again no effense, but this is the truth, and with all that sugar, i ruined my best pot. the sugar baked, and stuck to the edges of my bowl, and it wouldn't come off, i went through two sponges and a whole lot of dish detergent and it still stayed. the jam in the end like i said before, didnt taste so great. my tip- dont try it!

Uma said... [Reply]

Hi Anonymous,

Sorry to hear that this jam didn't came out good for you! But it came out perfect for me. It might be due the differences between power of the microwaves. This is not my own recipe, I just followed it from a different source which I have linked in my recipe. As you can see, it was easily spreadable for me! we really enjoyed a lot and the taste also came good. Don't know how you made it!

Hampers said... [Reply]

Yum Yum Yum this looks good! :) Can't wait to try it out!
