  • 6 cups peeled cored, and chopped apples (about 3 pounds/1.4 kg)
  • Zest and juice of 4 lemons
  • 2 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup honey


  • Prepare boiling water bath and 4 regular mouth 1-pint/500ml jars (according to the directions in this article).
  • Place the lids in a small saucepan, cover them with water, and simmer over very low heat.
  • Combine the chopped apples and lemon juice in a large pot.
  • Bring to the very barest of simmers over medium heat and then reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Cook the apples down into a chunky sauce, stirring frequently, until they can easily be mashed with the back of a wooden spoon. This will take between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the age of your apples.
  • Once the apples are quite soft, smash them a bit more with a potato masher.
  • Add the sugar and honey. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. At this point the jam will become quite splashy. Use a mesh splatter shield if you have one, to keep the flying bits of jam off of your arms and stovetop.
  • After an additional 10 minutes of sputtering cooking, the jam should be thickening and quite sticky looking. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the lemon zest.
  • Ladle the jam into the prepared jars, leaving a ¼ inch of headspace. Wipe the rims, apply the lids and rings, and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes (according to the directions in this article).
