Dried Apricot and Almond Jam
« on: July 30, 2020, 07:27:49 am »
Dried Apricot and Almond Jam
405ml can apricot nectar
375g dried apricots, roughly chopped
1 large lemon, juiced
1 cup white sugar
cup slivered almonds, Toasted ( I used flaked)
Toast almonds.
Place apricots into the bowl and blitz a couple of times. You want them chopped fairly well.
Place apricot nectar and 1 cup cold water into the bowl, add sugar, lemon juice and apricots.
Cook at 100* for approx 15 minutes. I put the varoma base on the top to stop the liquid bubbling everywhere.
Check to see if the jam is ready. (cold saucer from the freezer test)
If not cook a little longer.
When cooked stir in the almonds. I did this with a spatula.
Place into hot sterilized jars, cap, and invert for 2 minutes.

This makes about 3 cups of jam. I'm going to keep mine in the fridge as it doesnt have a lot of sugar in it. This is one of the recipes I found while having the monster clean out!!!  The dried apricots slurp up a lot of the liquid.
