Apricot Jam

I have another quick recipe for you..This is so simple I had to write about it..It came from Heloise and I have had it for years..
8 ounce package of dried apricots, 1/2 cup sugar and half of a fresh lemon..Put 4 cups of water in pot, put in apricots and sugar. Slice half of lemon extremely thin slices and then chop in tiny pieces. Add to the pot. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes, without lid. After 20 minutes you can mash the fruit to break it up. After the 30 minutes, see if it is thick enough, if not cook a little longer..Let sit until room temp..then put in jars, then into the refrigerator..Once I added one knox unflavored gelatin pack in the end, and it set really good, some may like it a bit more sweet, so add more sugar.. I am going to try it with Agave, the organic sweetener..always use the dried organic fruit..I try and share these quick recipes just for your health..When you see your jars of jam in the fridge, you have a feeling of well being and you know what you are eating..You have to admit, this is a fun recipe and quick.

Till next time, keep looking up...

What a great idea! I'm always looking for simple cooking projects to do with my three year old daughter (cooking to her is no more than pouring the sugar herself and then tasting it when she is done) and this sounds like the perfect spring afternoon activity! Thanks for sharing!!
