Carmel Apple Jam in the Ball FreshTech Jam & Jelly Maker

My recipe for Carmel Apple Jam is a favorite at our house. When we go apple picking the first thing Ott, E says is... "are you going to use these apples to make Carmel Apple Jam?" I have shared the recipe for the traditional way to make this jam on my blog before, (find it here). But today I'm sharing how to make it using the Ball FreshTech Jam and Jelly Maker. No more standing over the hot stove stirring. Simply pour in your ingredients and let the machine do all the work.
You will love the sweet and Carmel flavor of this apple jam as it is the perfect fall recipe and will definitely taste great on biscuits and toast!!!

Ingredients: 6 cups diced and peeled apples, 1/2 cup water, 1.75 oz pkg. of fruit pectin,  3 cups sugar, 2 cups packed brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg.
Directions:  Place apples and water in the Ball FreshTech Jam & Jelly Maker, cover and select the Jam setting.  After the machine beeps add your pectin.  When there are 10 minutes left on the timer add your remaining ingredients and replace the lid.  Once machine is done, ladle jam into jars leaving 1/4 inch head space.  Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.  Makes 7 half pints.

Tried this recipe last night and it worked well! One question: have you tried adding the sugar when the machine beeps (to indicate to add sugar at 4 minutes) rather than when there's 10 minutes left on the timer? Does this change the consistency/texture of the jam?

Just got a Ball Jam maker. Tried your recipe in it. My husband has a small orchard in the backyard. This recipe is outstanding!

Is there enough acidity in this for water bath canning?

I love another recipe for the machine! I was disappointed that my jam came out much darker than yours. Its good but more the color of apple butter. Any words of wisdom? ��
