  1. Add the apples and sugar to a good sized pot over medium heat and cook it stirring often.
  2. When it starts boiling turn down the heat a bit and let it cook for a while more.
  3. When the apples are almost cooked, blend them with a hand blender, add the cinnamon to taste (optional), stir well and then finish cooking, it will take a total time of 1 hour to 1 hour and a half to cook (have a plate on the side with a spoon and keep checking the jam for consistency by putting a spoonfull on the plate, some people like it a little runny while I like it a little more firm).
  4. Have your jars washed and ready and fill them with the hot jam (be careful to tighten the lids well).
  5. You can store the jars in the pantry for up to 12 months.

Duarte you can cut back on the sugar if you like, this is what is recommended but everyone should add to taste. This amount of sugar also helps to preserve it.
