Toffee apple jam is made with layers of homemade toffee sauce and lemony apple compote
Method1. For the toffee sauce: melt the sugar, syrup and 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.
2. For the jam: place the apples, water and lemon juice in a separate pan and cook down until soft and fluffy – this will take about 15-20 minutes. 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.
3. 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.
