Apple Maple Jam

Image result for canned apple maple jam

Submitted by Becca Clayton.

3 qt. finely chopped apples (about 6 lbs.)
6 cups sugar
1 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. allspice
½ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. cloves

Combine all ingredients in a large sauce pot.  Bring slowly to a boil.  Cook rapidly to jellying point.  As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking.  Pour hot into hot jars, leaving ¼ inch head space.  Adjust caps.  Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath.  Yields about 8 half pints.

Becca note:  You don't need pectin to make this apple jam, because pectin is made from apples!
