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.


Servings 4 servings


  • 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
