We had some apricots that were starting to get soft but were delicious, so I decided to make a mini-batch of jam. This was incredible. The flavor is nothing like store jam. The apricot flavor is really strong and a little tangy… excellent.
These were organic apricots so I didn’t peel them and I didn’t want to waste a packet of pectin on such a small amount, so I just cooked it longer so that it would jell nicely. It was perfect.
It made a single half-pint jar (almost), and we made it last until the weekend. Yum. 🙂
4 ripe apricots (don’t need to peel these if organic and washed)
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Chop apricots, add to saucepan, add sugar and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat, bring to a rolling bubble, and cook for 20 minutes, or until thick and jelled. Add to sterilized jars while hot (this will create a seal).
