Dutch Apple Pie Jam


  • 3 1/2 c Tart Apples like Granny Smith Peeled and Shredded
  • 1/2 C Raisins
  • 1 1/4 C Water
  • 2 TBS Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Allspice
  • 1 box Powdered Pectin
  • 4 C Sugar
  • 1 C Brown Sugar packed
  • 1/2 tsp Butter optional


  1. In a large pot combine apples, raisins, water, lemon juice, allspice, cinnamon, pectin and butter (if using to reduce foaming). Heat on high stirring frequently until you reach a full boil.
  2. Mix in sugar and brown sugar and bring back to a full boil. Boil for 1 minute stirring to prevent scorching.
  3. Remove from heat, skim foam and fill jelly jars leaving 1/8th inch of headspace. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.


  1. Use any other good baking apple

  2. Substitute in golden raisins or craisins for regular raisins.

  3. Change up the combination of spices--my Baking Spice would be great for example.
