Apple And Almond Bread

I have been experimenting using my bread maker to make jam, with some success. As I had been given a selection of Apples by Sam, and not wanting them to go to waste I decided to make apple jelly. I used 500g of apples and a few sprigs of rosemary (picked) to make the jam, with a combination of fructose, grape juice and citric acid. Sadly, I have not got the balance quite right and the jam is still too sweet. It will make a lovely apple sauce to accompany our roasts though, so it will at least not go to waste. When I saw this month’s 12 loaves challenge I decided to use the apple sauce I had made in my apple and almond bread. I have once again used the bread maker to do all the hard work as at this time of the year even though the weather is slightly better I am under a lot of time pressure. I know that as soon as our summer holidays start, I will have more time on my hands to do the hard work involved in making bread. This apple bread was really lovely. You got a hint of apples in the taste and it made a really good, tasty breakfast bread.

do you make your own jams?

  1. I am always thrilled when a good friend bakes for Twelve Loaves! And this bread is a must-try! I love the addition of applesauce (and homemade!). It must taste marvelous, Tandy. Beautiful!

  2. A lovely looking bread, dear Tandy! It looks scrumptious too! I only make a few jams per year but my mom is an award-making & ethousiastic jam maker. She comes iup with the most great combo’s of fruit & spices, etc! My favourite recipe of her jam is cranberry, redcurrants & raisin jam!

  3. Nice combination of apple and almond…nothing like a slice of bread fresh out of the oven…yum!
    Have a wonderful week ahead Tandy 🙂

  4. I love that you made your own apple sauce. I think homemade applesauce is something I can never tire of. Love the idea of adding to this wonderful bread with almonds. Thanks for baking with us again, Tandy:)

  5. This bread sounds delicious! I’ve made jam, but I haven’t used citric acid…this is a new ingredient for me (it is also in your bread recipe!), interesting.
