When I think of fall, one food that comes to mind is apples. Apple cider, apple butter, apple pie…..all things apple. One thing you may love and think is difficult to make is apple jam. You might be surprised at just how easily you can make this yourself (without all of the preservatives and additives you find in the store-bought items).Print
