Apple Perserve Recipe

This recipe comes straight from my Mother-in-law.  From a young girl she collected so many recipes, and decided to make her own little cookbook.  Of course, once I caught eye of this I went straight for it :).   I am very lucky in regards to having this woman in my life, a very special lady.  Anyway I have been watching her cook for many years and one recipe that I always found interesting is this Apple Preserve recipe.

It is very simple to make but there is a twist to it.  She always added 2 dashes of Rum.:).  It tastes delicious…..that’s if you like Rum, otherwise it taste delicious without the Rum.

Portions: 4

1 Kilo Apples sliced

1/2 cup of Sugar

1 Cinnamon Stick

2 teaspoons  Nutmeg (Optional)

1 1/2 cup Water

2 dashes of Rum



In a large sauce pan add Apples, Sugar, Cinnamon Stick, Water and let boil for 20 minutes.  Once the Apples are soft your preserve is ready.  Let it cool for about 2 hours before serving.



Add the Rum and top with Ice Cream.  🙂
