Apple Jam

On Rosh Hashanah it is common to eat apples and honey to symbolize a sweet new year. This is my mother's traditional apple jam for the holiday, which we eat every year


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 10 min
  • Ready Time : 20 min


2 cups


  • 2 kg (4.4 lb) Granny Smith apples
  • 1 kg. (2.2 lb) sugar
  • 20 g vanilla sugar
  • 1½ cups of water
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Peel and grate the apples.
  2. Put the grated apples, sugar, vanilla sugar, and water in a pot over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes, then add the lemon juice.
  3. Check consistency of the jam, by pouring a bit of the mixture on a cold plate. The jam should not be too fluid and not too strong. It is ready when it just stays still on the plate.
  4. Allow to cool before serving. Store in a tightly sealed glass jar in the fridge for up to a  few weeks
