Category: Jellies, Jams & Preserves

 Ingredients List

  • 6 lb Apricots, ripe
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Honey, mild
  • 3 tb Lemon juice

 Directions

Wash the apricots. Cut them in half through the natural indentation and
remove the pits. Slice each half into 4 lengthwise strips. There should be
approximately 4 quarts.

Gently combine the apricot slices, sugar, honey, and lemon juice in a large
nonreactive bowl. Allow to stand at room temperature for 3 to 4 hours,
stirring several times to keep the fruit coated and to help the juices
dissolve the sugar.

Pour the fruit mixture into a large 6 quart nonreactive shallow preserving
pan and bring toa boil over high heat. With a metal spoon or fine mesh
skimmer, skim off any foam that forms on top. Reduce heat to medium.
Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 30 minsutes until the
mixture is thick with a few chunks left and appears slightly glazed.

Turn off the heat and skim any additional foam. Ladle into hot sterilized
jars, wipe rims clean with a damp towel, and seal with new lids and metal
rings.Process in a hot-water bath for 5 mins. Remove, cook, check seal,
label, and store.
