This is truly an all year round jam. We love it. I always use Australian dried apricots (as opposed to the sweeter Turkish apricots) and it is truly delicious. You can use fresh apricots, but I have actually found that the dried apricots work so well, and are cheaper in fact.

This recipe did show up in For Foods Sake, which if you still don't have, it is time to get on over to the store and GET IT! My first big cookbook, and my favourite...almost. (We aren't supposed to have favourites!)

Here are some other stunning jam recipes on this site...I really do spoil you;
