Apricot Jam

 The apricot tree is empty now. I made 4 batches of apricot jam this week. The recipe is simple. Fortunately, apricots have pectin, so you just need 8 cups of ripe apricots (remove pit and pull apart), 6 cups or one kilo sugar, and juice of one large lemon. Bring to boil, skim off foam, and boil until thickened. 

Pour into clean jars, add lid tightly, and turn upside down. When cool, you will have a sealed jar of apricot jam. What a beautiful color!

    Your jam is beautiful. I tried spraying dormant oil on my trees but still got worms. What do you do to get such nice worm free apricots?

  3. I guess you could call these apricots and all of our fruit and olive trees–organic because we don't spray them since we're here only part of the year. Whatever the birds leave us, we're happy!
