    A lovely jam to make when apricots are in season. With only two ingredients - it's very simple to make.

    Makes: 4  jars

    • 1 kg apricots
    • 700g granulated sugar

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr10min  ›  Ready in:1hr25min 

    1. Pick the best apricots; wash and remove the stones. Slice into chunks.
    2. Place the apricots in a large pot over low heat. Add sugar a little at a time, mixing continuously and paying attention that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot. The sugar will start to caramelise and the apricots will become mushy. Continue stirring for about 1 hour.
    3. When the mixture starts to have the colour and consistency of jam, taste it to see if it is sweet enough. You can add more sugar if it tastes bitter. Spoon into warm, clean jars; cover and set aside to cool.

    This makes great and easy jam anytime you can get fresh, ripe apricots. I store the additional jars in the freezer and take them out as I need them.  -  27 Sep 2012


    I bought a box of apricots to eat raw, but found them very bland, so made them into jam instead! It is delicious, but only needed HALF the amount of sugar in the recipe.  -  07 Aug 2016
