Apricot Jam is one of my favorites! A neighbor offered to let us pick all over her apricots because she didn't want any of them, gasp! Crazy, I know! So we picked a few buckets full and made some freezer jam. They weren't the most flavorful apricots I've had. My grandparents are much better. Although, when mixed with a bunch if sugar they really aren't too bad ;) We made like 70 cups of jam though so Cade and I are set for at least a year.
1 and 2/3 cup fruit, puréed and diced
2/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp instant pectin
Mix fruit sugar and lemon juice. Let stand 10 minutes. Add pectin to mixture, ladle into containers and let stand 30 minutes. Store in freezer up to a year.
*If making a lot of jam, only double or triple the recipe and do additional batches seperately. Combing too many batches will cause the jam not to set.
