Prep Time 10 minutes

Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 16 ounces


  • 1 lb apricots pitted with skins on
  • 12 ounces sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp classic pectin


  • Remove the pits from the apricots. Leave the skin on. Puree the apricots with a sticker blender or food processor.
  • Weight the puree with a kitchen scale. Add an equal amount of sugar. Should be about 12 ounces. Add in 1 ½ teaspoons of the pectin.
  • Place a small plate in the freezer.
  • Add the fruit puree to a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Stir the jam every so often for 10 mintues. Turn down the heat if it looks like it will boil over.
  • When the jam darkens and thickens enough to start coating the sides of the pan. Remove from the heat.
  • Place a little bit onto the plate you put in the freezer. Put back in the freezer for at least 1 minute. Tip the plate sideways. If the jam stays put, then it is done. If not, then cook the jam longer and try again until it is thick.
  • Place the jam into the jar or container of your choice. You should have around 16 ounces of jam.
  • Once cooled, store jam in fridge or freezer.
