ABOUT Apple Raisin Brandy Jam RECIPE

Jazz up your morning breakfast by this Apple Raisin Brandy Jam. It's chunky with a slight tang comes from the raisins and the brandy adds a little zing. What's not to love in this jam? Did I mention that it has no pectin too.

Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. 4 large apples
  2. 1 inch Fresh Ginger, julienned
  3. 3/4 cups Golden raisin
  4. 3/4 cup Unsweetened apple juice / Apple cider vinegar
  5. 2 tbsp Fresh lemon Juice
  6. Fresh lemon zest from 1 lemon
  7. 3 - 3.5 cups Granulated sugar
  8. 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  9. 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  10. 1/2 tsp Dry ginger powder
  11. 1/4 cup Brandy/Rum


  1. Prepare the jars for storing the jam. In a big pot, add enough water, put the jars and lids. Boil on a high heat for 10 minutes. Then turn off the flame and let the bottles rest for 10-15 minutes in the hot water.
  2. Roughly chop the raisins either using a knife or in a food processor.
  3. Clean apples and chop in to small chunks. In a heavy bottom pan, add chopped apples, apple juice/cider, lemon juice, lemon zest and julienned ginger. Bring it to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to medium and let it cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The apples will soften and look mushy.
  5. In a potato masher or backside of a fork mash the apples and break into smaller chunks.
  6. Reduce the heat. Add chopped raisins. Pour all the sugar at once and mix well. Increase the heat and bring to a rolling boil for 5-8 minutes, stirring the mixture constantly.
  7. Remove from heat. The mixture might still look like liquid but that is fines. It will thicken up when cooling down.
  8. Stir in cinnamon powder, nutmeg, ginger powder and brandy. Give it a good mix.
  9. Transfer the Jam to dry sterilized bottles. Allow it to cool completely in the Jar. Then close the lid tightly.
