Or should I say, no added sugar, considering the fruit sugar. Either way, this jam was so easy, I don’t know why I haven’t been doing it for years.
This recipe actually came from my mom. She first gave us a box of apricots the other day, that needed to be used ASAP! Then she told me about some new pectin in the stores that do not require adding sugar to your fruit. It specifically says on the box, “No sugar needed.”
- 6 cups of fresh pitted apricots
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 box “No sugar needed” pectin
- 1/4 cup concentrated apple juice
- 3/4 cup water
Mash up the apricots with a potato masher or a fork, then add them along with the rest of the ingredients to a large saucepan.
Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly. Then remove from heat and cool.
Finally, put it into jars and straight into the fridge! No canning required!
MMMM, and you know what it tastes like? Apricots! Tangy and delicious, not sickingly sweet. Apricots are supposed to be tangy!
We pick up our Japanese friends from the airport today! We are excited. I asked Anna what she and her friend wanted me to pick up at the grocery store. She’s so cute, her reply was
