Apricot , & Nectarine jam

Submitted by Anastasia 02 September 2009

This is very easy to make , & sets pretty fast. Such a beautiful colour. Use fruit that is ripe.When cooking the jam you can use a plastic potato masher if the pieces of fruit are too big. Do this if necessary when setting point has



2 lbs apricots, 2 Lbs nectarines, 2 lemons 3 1/2 Lbs sugar.


Remove the stones from the fruit by placing in boiling water for up to 2 mins. Remove the rind from the lemons , & chop up very fine.Chop the fruit. Juice the lemons. Add the fruit , rind, & sugar & juice to the pan , & slowly bring to the boilmaking sure that all the sugar is dissolved before increasing the heat to bring the contents to a rolling boil. After about 15 mins check for setting point.I find this easy to set.
