You're a very dedicated cook Sue, no way would my back allow me to cook all day.

 I had 1.5 kg apricots given to me today so Iíve made most of the fruit into this jam adding 5 minutes on Varoma temperature as suggested by JulieO.  So easy.

Thanks Denise, if I have anymore fruit given to me I might just stew it.  I donít eat a lot of jam so most of this will be given away.

Looks good Judy.  I make a lot of jam and jellies and also give most away.  Everyone loves Apricot Jam.

The biggest problem is the jars Chookie, Iíve probably used 40-50 in the past month (quite a few of those were bought jars) and stocks are now running low - so is my sugar!

As you say everyone loves apricot jam. I think I had better make some before the apricots disappear. DD eats the jam and I may have a teaspoon each day so it lasts for a long time.

Since I started this thread what seems like eons ago now, I've now got it down pat using the method below.  I make as much apricot jam in our summer as I can to last us over the colder months until they come into season again. I find it so easy to do small amounts more often.

One thing I've learned that at the end of cooking it will seem runny but as it cools down it will thicken, once you've made it a couple of times you will get the idea.  At first I cooked longer on Varoma as it seemed too runny but once it was cold I found it to be too firm. 

APRICOT JAM
500g apricots (weighed without the stone)
approx 400g sugar
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Place all ingredients into TM bowl.  Program 2 secs/speed 5.

Program 30 mins/ 100ºC/speed 2.  MC off.

Cook further 5 mins/Varoma temp/speed 2.  MC on a slant to stop spitting.(or use steamer basket)

Check on a cold saucer, if need be, cook further 3 mins/Varoma temp/speed 2.

Pour into sterilized jars and seal.
I made a batch of this with some good priced apricots. It is so tasty.
