3 Ingredient Apricot Jam

 

I had received some freshly picked ripe apricots from a friend’s yard. Although I am not a fan of apricots, these were yummy and very ripe. So, I decided to make some jam.

The jam turned out great. Tasted sweet and tangy! And loved the beautiful caramel orange color.

The recipe is very simple..

What you’ll need:

  • Ripe Apricots (cleaned, pitted and quartered) – 6 cups
  • Raw Sugar – 3 cups
  • Lemon (Juice and Zest) – 1

Tip: You can do this freezer test to see if the jam is done or not –

Put a plate in the freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes. When you think the jam looks ready, turn off the heat. Take the plate out of freezer and pour a spoonful of jam on the cold plate. Put back in the freezer and let sit for 1 to 2 minutes. Take out and when you push the jam with finger, it should wrinkle and not fill back in the gap. If it runs, then cook some more.
