It’s autumn and I like this season with its bright colors. And when I’m cosy inside, storm and rain don’t really bother me.
Autumn is of course also apple and nut season. And I have plenty of both right here. So I dared to try a new variant of jam for the breakfast table. I hope you also like such “other” recipes on an actual back-blog…
You’ll need it:
800 g apples (I took Elstar)
200 ml apple juice
1 vanilla pod
500 g preserving sugar 2 : 1
50 g chopped walnut kernels
Peel and core the apples and cut them into small cubes. Pour into a saucepan together with the apple juice. Slice the vanilla pod and scrape out the pulp. Add the pulp and the stick to the apples. Add the gelling sugar, mix well and let everything rest for about 2 hours to make juice.
After 2 hours, cook for 4 minutes until bubbling. Shortly before the end of the cooking time, add the nuts. Remove the vanilla pod and pour the jam into hot glasses. With me this has resulted in 2 larger and a small glass.
Let it cool down well and then enjoy it best with fresh rolls or brioche in a warm place, while the autumn wind blows outside.
