Luck's Apricot Jam

7 lbs apricots halved

1 cup water

5 & 1/2 lbs sugar

Wash fruit & cut in half.

Pour water into heavy based saucepan and add apricots.

Bring to boil slowly and then simmer for 20 mins.

While fruit is cooking warm sugar in a dish in the oven.

Then stir warmed sugar gradually into the fruit.

Boil until the jam sets, when tested on a cold plate in the fridge.

This can take an hour once the sugar is added.


450 gm = 1lb of fruit.

5 1/2 lbs sugar = 2 & 3/4 kg

My sister told me not to use the clear covers that can be bought for jam. Use the lids that have a pop top as this will seal the jar tight and the jam will last longer.
