I love making Jam at home. In fact, this is one of my first recipes, which I used to make when I needed to make lunch for my kids. I hardly bought Jam from stores, especially when my kids were young. Store-Bought Jam is filled with sugar and is totally bad for your health.

All about the Apple Jam
This Cinnamon Spiced Apple Jam has a sweet Apple flavor to it which is spiced with the ground cinnamon. I like the combination of Cinnamon in my Apple Jam. It brings out the flavors very well.
This Apple Jam takes about 30 minutes to get prepared. Apple Jams cook really quickly. This is because of the natural sweetness of apples and low water content. I like to use fuji Apples for my Jam.
They are a little crunchy on the outside but juicy on the inside. You can use any apples you have but the cooking time will vary depending upon the sugar content and water content of the apples.
To store the Jam you Can them or use a water bath so that they stay fresh for a long time. However, since I make small batches, I don't use water baths. A clean jar always makes sure that your Jam stays fresh for a long time. Also, the sealing rings should be perfectly fitting.
It is very important that you store the hot jam in the jars and cover with the lid. Storing hot jams will make then stay fresh. Also, you will hear a pop sound which means that the lid of the jars is sealed. Allow the jams to stay on the counter for 10-12 hours before you keep them in a cool and dry place.
The cinnamon spice helps keep your Jam fresh. I have not used Pectin for my Jam. Nor have I used any water bath. You can use it if you wish to.
How to Make Apple Jam in the Crockpot
To make your Cinnamon Spiced Apple Jam in the slow cooker, put butter along with sugar in a skillet. As the sugar melts, pour water and bring this mixture to a boil. Dump it in the slow cooker. Add the spices and Apples and cook for 8-10 hours. Stir occasionally in between. After about 10 hours, you can cook uncovered for 30 min on High. Cooking uncovered will evaporate all the water. You can blend the apples using an immersion blender however, I never use it. I like it just as it is. Pour the hot jam in sterile containers and cover with the lids. Store on the counter for 12 hours and then refrigerate it.
This Apple Jam with Cinnamon flavors stays fresh for up to 2 weeks.
