Apricot Jam Recipe

Summer Harvest


I have one apricot tree that we planted a few years ago.  It produces so many sweet little apricots that I invite my neighbors over to share in the harvest.  Some eat them straight off the tree, some take them home to eat with their families, and some make jam.  I like the single flavored variety while others like to add herbs, spices, and different fruits, I like to keep it simple.  I also like to make my jams whenever possible without store bought pectin.   Enjoy!
