Apricot Jam in Small Batches
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This is a wonderful way to use some of the "extra" ripe summer fruit. It makes a small quantity, so do not even bother to do the canning process...just pour into small bowls or cups and refrigerate. Use it within 2-3 months, which is no problem as it is so delicious on toast, muffins, in peanut butter sandwiches, etc.
2 cups fresh apricots, chopped
In glass or ceramic batter bowl, combine apricots, sugar, zest and juice. Cook in the microwave 10 minutes, uncovered. Stir very well to dissolve any sugar remaining on the bottom. Add the pectin and stir it in. Cook 1 minute. Pour into hot sterilized jars if canning it for long-term storage. OR...This can be stored in refrigerator up to 3 months without canning it, just use it!
