The Best Apple Jam with 2 Ingredients

apple sauce

This 2-ingredient apple jam is delicious, perfectly textured, and so easy to make. Whip up a large batch so you can enjoy it all season long. 

There’s nothing quite like homemade jam. Am I right? No matter how good the store-bought version is, homemade is somehow always better. It’s delicious, and you know exactly what goes into it. Whenever I’ve got a large number of berries, apples, apricots, etc. I know exactly what to do with them: make jam for the family!

So, that’s exactly what I did this past weekend. I had some leftover apples from when we went apple picking and frankly, I was craving some warm, soft, cozy apple jam. 

Why this is the only apple jam recipe you need:

Only 2 ingredients. I’m not even joking. Only apples and sugar in here.

You know exactly what goes into the jam. Some store-bought jams are full of unknown ingredients. With this recipe, you know you’re not giving your family anything they shouldn’t be eating. If you’re watching sugar levels at home, you can always pull back on the amount you add to tailor to your family’s needs.

Did I mention how easy it is to make? Grate your apples, cook with sugar for an hour, and store! That’s it!

I love eating this jam with toast on those early, cold mornings. It also makes a great topping for things like ice cream, yogurts, and even oatmeal! 

I really hope you try making this apple jam at home. I’m sure you’ll love it!

What do I need to make this recipe?
