Does anyone have an Apple Jam recipe? I can find plenty for jelly, but I'm looking for jam with bits of fruit in it. Thanks.

I use Surejel and follow the recipe as if I were making jelly except that I put very thin slices of fruit in the juice. It acts as marmalade or preserves. For jam, the fruit would have to be diced or crushed. (09/16/2009)
Apple Butter Jam
To prepare pulp: wash apples, remove stems and blossom ends. Do not peel or core. Cut apples into quarters. Add 2 cups of water cover and simmer until apples are soft. Press through a sieve or food mill. Measure 2 quarts apple pulp.
To prepare butter: Combine apple pulp, sugar and spices in a large saucepot. Cook slowly until thick enough to round up on a spoon. As pulp thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. If to thick, add a small amount of water or apple juice for desired consistency. Ladle hot butter into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath canner.
Yields about 5 pints
