Apricot Jam recipe, cheap and so easy to make


In Western Australia, apricots appear in the shops 3 - 4 weeks before Christmas. After boring apples, pears and bananas all winter we really appreciate stone fruit. This jam always sets well. I never need to use Jamsetta. Only three ingredients and one of those is water.

Add sugar and return to the boil, stirring constantly. Boil until thickened, stirring frequently.

Carefully pour into hot jars. Seal whilst hot.



Don't omit the kernels from this recipe. They help the jam to set.
