Apple Horseradish Jam with a Weston Tomato Press

Adding horseradish, cloves & fennel seeds to this sweet apple jam gives it a savory element while also adding a little zip. It's the perfect addition to the cheese board at your next gathering. 

- Ingredients - 
1 tablespoon fresh horseradish root
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
4 apples
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon toasted fennel seeds
1 teaspoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- Tools -
Weston 3-in-1 Grater or Weston Drum Shredder
Weston Apple Peeler
Weston Tomato Press
Weston Canning Kit


Use your Grater or Shredder to grate the fresh horseradish root until you have a tablespoon of shredded horseradish. Pour apple cider vinegar over the horseradish. Set aside.

We used the garlic plates in the Weston Grater to make quick work of fresh horseradish. 

Peel, core & slice the apples with your Apple Peeler. Place the slices into a sauce pan with ¼ cup water. Bring to a boil, then simmer until apples are soft - about 10 minutes.

Our apple peeler makes apple prep so much easier.

Alternately, you can skip the Apple Peeler, quarter the apples, and simmer them until soft - the Tomato Press with remove the skin and seeds for you. The simmering process will just take much longer when you skip the Apple Peeler.

Place the softened apples into your Tomato Press and turn the handle to make applesauce.

The standard apple/tomato screen is perfect for making apple sauce in our Tomato Press

Place the apple sauce into a small pot with the remaining ingredients (including the horseradish). Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until you have a thick jam.


Enjoy immediately with smoked gouda or goat cheese, or use a Canning Kit to properly seal the jar and store for the long term.

If you use no other tool in our Canning Kit, use the Canning Funnel. It's essential for loading into jars without a mess.
