Apple Pie is a staple of the Fall and Winter seasons. This jam is just the thing to enjoy any time of day. Spread on your favorite toast, top off your pancakes or waffles, stir into your yogurt, ice cream and more!

The perfect combination of organic red apples, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg with a dash of ginger is simply perfection. To go for a more tart taste, use juicy Granny Smith apples for that perfect zing. 

Top it off with a quick and easy crumble top and you've got yourself apple pie in a jar!
