Candy in a Jar: Flavors of Fall

Love all the wonderful smells and flavors of fall and the holidays?  Then capture them all year with these wonderful recipes that reflect the classics you love.

American Apple Pie
This wonderful, chunky apple jam tastes just like the apple pie your grandma used to make - without all the work!  A mix of ripe apples, sweet brown sugar and a hint of cinnamon, you'll be hard pressed to not eat the whole thing at once!

Apple Cider Jelly
One taste of this takes you back to warming up after a long day in the snow or cozying up in front of the fireplace.  This homemade cider is perfectly infused with spices, leaving your mouth watering for more.
(No alcohol is used in this recipe)

Caramel Apple Butter
This is a great variation on apple butter – for those days when you want just a little more sweetness.  Besides, as long as you’re bottling all the wonderful fall flavors, you might as well include caramel apples in the bunch!  Thick, sweet goodness with chunks of apple and swirls of caramel make this a recipe not pass up.

Gingerbread Pumpkin Butter
A lovely spread with all the gingerbread goodness, without all the work and drama of making houses that don’t fall, nor cookies that are actually cute.  Spread a bit of this deliciousness on toast, pancakes, or whatever you want to indulge in this season.

Holiday Cranberry
THIS is the cranberry topping you want on a turkey sandwich.  The tartness of the berry is offset by the slight orange twist and a hint of spices.  This will convert even the most stubborn cranberry sauce hater.  Savor it traditionally or try it on an English muffin.

Persimmon Cookie Preserves
My favorite cookie in the fall is persimmon cookies, a recipe passed down in my family!  Though they can be hard to find in the store, and are only there a few weeks, they are well worth it.  Sweet goodness mixed with raisins and walnuts are a sinful delight.

Pumpkin Pie Butter
This thick and creamy "butter" is full of holiday flavor.  Pumpkin pie always announced the end of a wonderful meal and a lot of hard work - but why enjoy it only once a year?  Great on waffles with whipped cream or warm homemade bread.

Wassail Marmalade
It seems that this wonderful English drink has somewhat fallen out of fashion.  If you read any historical books, you’ll often hear of this wonderful Christmas drink – combining spices with apples, oranges, and cranberries, it doesn’t get any better than this!  Note: No alcohol is use in this recipe.

White Chocolate Cranberry
For some reason, mixing white chocolate and cranberries both screams decadent holiday dessert, and it simply a divine combination.  So why not enjoy it in more than a cookie?
