Apple Jam With Mint Flavor



Ingredients
Apple: 6
Sugar: 2 ½ cups
Lemon Juice: 3-4tbsp
Cinnamon Stick 1”: 2 piece
Fresh Mint Leaves: 7

Method Of Preparation
Wash, peel, core and dice the apples.
In a pressure cooker add apple, cinnamon sticks and mint leaves.
Add 3 cups water and pressure cook till 4 whistles.
Let the pressure release and then open the cooker
Then add sugar  and again keep on flame without closing the lid.
Stir occasionally and when it starts thickening, add lemon juice and start stirring frequently till you get the consistency.  (To check the consistency, take the cold saucer out of the freezer, put a little jam on it, and put it back in to cool for a minute. If it wrinkles when you push it with your finger, then it's done.)
Switch off the flame when done.
When cooled, store in an air tight bottle.

Nice! Homemade jams give a lot of satisfaction. Especially when you bite into a toasted buttered slice of bread with this spread on. Then you really savour it.

home made jam is the best. urs looks yummy and love the mint addition in it. Since u r cooking it in the pressure cooker there is no need to add 3 cups water. One cup water will do. Saves energy and ur gas bill.
