"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" is the famous saying.
but I have a doubt,
what if a doctor is beautiful/ handsome?
"Keep that apple away"
When it comes to give the fruits to the kids, its difficult as many kids won't like to have fruit. But they love to eat jam with chapati, bread or toast.
When I got the LG complimentary book, there was a recipe for this jam. But I went of postponing to try it. Because my both kids do not like sweet and I am not much into jams.
When I announced MEC - Fruits, this was the first thing came in my mind. I took the book and tried the recipe but used only half the quantity from given quantity.
It is the easiest and quickest jam to prepare. And kids will love to have it with chapati or bread. Or try it on toasts and with dosas.
Apples are rich source of antioxidant compounds. Because of the fiber content, it helps in regular bowel movements. The best thing is apple does not have any caloric content and helps in heart disease and helps to control cholesterol.
Apple - 1, cleaned, peeled and cut into cubes
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Lime juice - 1 tbsp
Take the apple cubes in a M/W safe bowl.
Cook it on HIGH for 3 minutes, covered, but stirring in between. Let the apple are soft and sugar is mixed well with apple. Remove it out and allow it to cool.
Put it in a blender to puree it.
Transfer it into the same bowl and cook on HIGH for 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in between and check for the jam consistency. As each Microwave differs with the heating condition, please take care not to over cook it.
Once you feel the puree has got the jam texture. Remove it from M/W. Add lime juice and mix well. Once it comes to room temperature, store it in a fridge or have it with bread or chapati immediately. You can keep it in the fridge for more than a week. I was glad that my daughter loved it and had it with bread toast.
