Microwaved Apple Jam ~ Step by Step Recipe
MEC-Cooking event by Srivalli is something I eagerly look forward to every month.I am more excited in waiting for the round-up rather than participating.Each month I wait for the round-up and the next theme.I loved the MEC-Snacks & MEC -Cakes.Love them all.This month the theme is "Bottled".Was wondering what to cook,searched all possible MW books for the same.Came across this Apple Jam recipe in Tarla Dalal's MW cookbook.Got the much needed push when I searched the blogosphere and saw that Uma has already cooked and posted it.Thanks Sri & Uma for this wonderful opportunity & the wonderful recipe!!
My ma-in-law used to make kilos of jams and squashes.She went to a canning class near their house and stocked different varieties of jams and squashes.Sadly,she stopped making them when the kids grew up and consumption of these items was very less.I still pester her to make those for me and she has promised to make them someday!! Once,I happened to see a Jam making recipe on a cookery show with step by step instructions.Have written down the recipe but never came around making it!!But when I saw this recipe,I was tempted to try it for one reason,the simplicity in making it.Top it with the MW cooking event and Voila!! I made my first jam..!!It tastes best with bread,but I loved having it just like that..hmmm!!finger licking good!!(even if I may say so myself!!)
