Susiecat too's Note:
Very tangy, not too sweet! Heaven must taste like this. Got this from the NPR website, with a story about going to pick the apricots at the orchard every summer. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=12195825 Note: I pack the apricot halves firmly into the measuring cup so they are bursting full when I measure them. If you don't pack them in as firmly, you might want to use a few more apricots. Also, a note about the serving size: this assumes you are using a tablespoon or so as a serving to spread on a piece of bread. In my experience, this recipe makes just less than a pint of jam.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Don't worry about the skin, which disappears in the course of cooking.
- 2Bring to a boil, lower heat, and cook until the mixture turns a bit darker and looks like jam when you let it dribble off a spoon (about 45 to 60 minutes.).
- 3Stir it frequently enough that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.
- 4You can skim off the lighter colored stuff that rises to the top if you want, otherwise it seems to just disappear after a while.
- 5Wash and can according to canner instructions.
- 6Or, keeps well in refrigerator only, about 2-3 months, or in freezer, up to 12 months.
