Apricot Jam
« on: December 08, 2009, 08:25:34 am »
Not having made many jams, well only the strawberry one to be honest, was wondering if I needed to do anything different when making apricot jam?

Have bought 1kg from a seller and would love to give it a go.

Thanks in advance,

Julie.   :)

Recipe in my book is as follows

Apricot Jam
500g apricots (weighed without the stone)
500g sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Place all ingredients in, and program 2 seconds, speed 5.
Program 30 mins, 100º, speed 2.
Voilá!

Thanks Bron and Thermomixer. Jams are so easy in the TMX.

Thankyou Bron for posting, I appreciate it.  I will try it for sure  ;D

I did find this recipe on line last night and had a go immediately.  Very easy and the result is rather like a tub of thickened cream (in consistency).  I finished off on Varoma temp for 5 mins, but could go another 5 for thicker.  The only thing, I wish my apricots had been more ripe because that was the only thing wrong, but that was my fault for not being able to wait  :-)) 

It made 2 big jars and 1 small one.  I guess cooking the kernel is supposed to aid in setting?  Yes so easy in the TM.  I just wish I knew someone with an abundance of fruit.  :)

I had some lovely apricots that I've been allowing to ripen and a little while ago, I removed the stones and weighed into the TM bowl.  Had 450g, so I added the same amount of jam sugar and 1/2 tsp citric acid(didn't want to juice a lemon for such a small amount), and followed Bron's recipe to make jam.  Much easier than having to remove the kernels from the stones, then fishing them out after cooking like the recipe I tried previously.

I finished off on Varoma temp for 3 mins, then poured into a big sterilised jar. 

I can tell it's going to be just right!  ;D

Thanks Bron, I will follow this simple recipe from now on.   I can't see me buying store bought jam ever again. ;D

Made the Apricot jam,   beautiful flavor.   Used 3/4 amount of sug. and cooked for a further 10 mins. on varoma.  Still not thick enough for us so next time will add 1/2 packet of jamsetta.  So easy

I can now add this one to my list of done recipes too.  I can't believe how much jam/marmalade I have made lately - just because I can more than the fact that I need it  :-)) :-))

Good  work Judy.  Bron's recipe is the best I've tried.  I'm liking only making one or two jars at a time for our consumption, like you say I do because I can.  ;D

I hadn't made jam for years until I got my TMX. Last year I made peach and passionfruit. This year I've done heaps of strawberry jam and plan to do MJ's dried apricot jam over the weekend.

It is just so easy to make with the TMX and the flavour of homemade jam is amazing. I bought a big box of local apricots earlier in the week and and have been making at least one batch of jam each day.  Today I needed a break from jam and decided to pick the baby beets from our garden and pickle them.  The TMX was wonderful for heating the vinegar and spices and dissolving the sugar (without me stirring it). It is just so versatile!  :)
