If you grow your own Lemon verbena, this jam recipe is a treat. The lemony herb gives this jam incomparable flavour. It is fantastically simple to make, and doesn't require pectin. Refrigerate after opening a jar.
This is an old family recipe for apple and apricot jam, tried and tested over and over again with children, and grand-children. We like to gather our apricots at the end of the apricot season so that apple season is already underway meaning that we get the freshest ingredients possible to make this wonderful jam. Look for apricots from May through September and apples throughout the autumn.
This is a fantastically simple, yet delectable jam recipe. Habanero chilli, apricots, shallots, peppers, pineapple and cherry tomatoes grace this wonderful jam. Use as a glaze on chicken, pork or even beef.
I remember in the summer when my grandmother made this jam. We would wait patiently for the jam to be cooked with slices of bread in our hands. Then we would fight over who got to to lick the spoon.
This apricot compote is lovely with scones, toast, over yoghurt, with cake or simply on its own. Children love it as a snack. I have to admit that I like it too! Store in the fridge for up to a week, or freeze.
I love apricots. This quick apricot compote is easy to make and can be enjoyed with yoghurt and muesli for breakfast, or can be served as a pudding with creme fraiche or ice cream. If you don't have apricot brandy, use regular brandy instead.
Use this natural apricot spread to replace jam and marmalade. This spread is an excellent natural sweetener for porridge, smoothies and yoghurt. It may also be added to savoury dishes like Middle Eastern tagine dishes or sauces like tomato sauce in place of sugar.
The best time to make apricot jam is May through to September when apricots are in season. The south of England in areas like Kent can produce some of the juiciest and most delicious apricots, so look in regions along the south coast and in the south east for the best apricots for your jam. This is a simple family recipe, delightful all year round on toast and in tarts and cakes.
