Our second recipe we would like to share with you on the run up to Apple day is one from our good friend Clippy. This Toffee and Apple Jam recipe was given to us by Clippy and has been taken from her ‘Preserving the Nation’ UK school cookery tour.
“Clippy McKenna is the founder of the Clippy’s food brand. She is an everyday Mum obsessed with preserving; her first ‘Brownie’ Scout badge was for Marmalade. Her awarding-winning business is focused on transforming the world of preserves. Clippy’s products are sold nationally in U.K. supermarkets Tesco, Asda, Morrison’s, Ocado, Harvey Nichols, E.H. Booths, as well exporting to the U.S.A. and China. These memories have inspired Clippy’s taste buds to create diverse flavours such as ‘Rosy Raspberry & Apple curd’ to ‘Marinated Goats cheese infused in saffron, chilli & garlic oil’ which were created during her ‘Preserving the Nation’ cookery school tour.”
Toffee Apple Jam
- 100g of unsalted butter
- 100g of light Muscadvo sugar
- 4 tablespoons of golden syrup
- 4 tablespoons of double cream
- 600g of Bramley apples (once cored and peeled)
- 100ml of water
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 250g of white granulated cane sugar
- 1 vanilla pod
Firstly, melt the sugar, syrup & butter in a small pan and bring slowly to the boil. Reduce the
heat and simmer for 3 minutes or so until thick. Stir in the cream and remove from the heat
and set aside to cool.
Secondly, place the apples, water, vanilla pod seeds and lemon juice in a separate pan and
cook down until soft and fluffy – this will take about 10-15minutes. Once the apples have
become soft, add the sugar over a low heat until all the sugar has dissolved. Then crank up
the heat and bring to a simmering boil for approximately 4-5 minutes. The apple jam should
be lovely and thick.
Now the fun begins – add a layer of toffee sauce to the bottom of the jar and then a layer of
apple jam and continue layering until you reach the top of the jar. Hey presto Toffee Apple
