Spiced Apple Marmalade with Rum



Like a pirate’s treasure, apple slices are suspended in rum and precious sweet spices. The combination of fruit, spice and dark rum is delicious and the inspiration for one of my favorite jams. Serve it with snacks or desserts.The jam is a wonderful addition to a cheese tray, added to a simple cheese dessert such as fresh mozzarella, any cheddar, even a wedge of brie or camembert.
