500 gr red apples, peeled, discard the seeds, sliced
1 1/2 + 1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest
Place the apples, 1 1/2 cup water and cloves in a medium-size pot. Cook until the apples are softened. Discard the cloves, place the apples with the juice into the blender, pulse a few times to make a puree. Pour it back into the pot. Add 1 1/2 cup of water, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook for about 30 minutes at medium heat until the marmalade is dense. Pour it into a clean and dry jar. Close it tightly, let it cool. Store Apple Marmalade in a dark and cool place.
Serve Apple Marmalade on freshly buttered Turkish Bread.
* If you like, grate the apples instead of slice.
*Test the jam by dabbing a little on one of the cold plate. Wait for a few seconds, then push the jam with your fingertip. If it wrinkles, it is done:) If not, cook for 2-3 more minutes.
