Title: Dried Apricot Preserves, tenina's recipe
Post by: achookwoman on September 11, 2011, 05:22:07 am

This is Tenina's recipe with some minor changes. I used 1/2 Australian and 1/2 Turkish Apricots as the Australian ones were very dark. It is delicious and easy.

400g. dried Apricots.
350g water
250g sugar
60g of fresh lemon juice.

Place Apricots into TMX bowl and cook for 10 min.,/ 100o/reverse speed 1.

Add remaining ingredients and cook for a further 20mins./90o/reverse speed 1.

If too thick add a little more lemon juice and cook a further 5 mins.

I left the MC on as there didn't seem to be enough liquid.  I felt like chopping the Apricots first but didn't and the jam turned out OK. It is a preserve rather than a jam. Hope this helps fundj.

I have made the jam, and I don't really like the "whole apricot" look, so I may just chop up a bit once I see what it looks like when its cooled down. This was used in last nights cooking class for the Christmas Ham and it was sensational.

CP,  I have made it twice and the second time I chopped it before cooking.  Think I like it a bit lumpy but not big lumps.

I seethat Tenina's original taste of this used fresh apricots and dried. Seeing apricot season is here I might try it that way first. I love all the ways you can use it and it was delicious in the ham glaze at last nights class.

Just making this for a trading table, how long does it last if sealed properly please. In the pantry OK?

I'm not sure Judy. I've just checked FFS where the recipe is from and it doesn't say. I tend to keep my jams in the fridge. It doesn't say anything on her blog either. It does taste lovely though.

Judy, Treat it just like jam. Sterile bottles and lid on while hot. In fridge when open.
