Smashed Pear Jam
pounds apples
cup water
  1. Peel, core and slice apples. Place apples and water in a 4 or 5-quart heavy-bottom pan over medium heat. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes, until very tender. Remove from heat. Mash apples with a potato masher or blend with an immersion blender. Return to heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 to 30 minutes until the jam thickens and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  2. Transfer to a covered container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Teaching Notes:

For the best flavor jam and natural sweetness, use juicy ripe apples. To ripen apples, place them in a brown paper bag on a kitchen counter. Check them every day to determine when they are ripe.
