This time of year, my heart and mind goes to making jam. So here is my take on Apricot Pineapple Jam. Who doesn't like homemade jam?
Apricot Pineapple Jam
1 lb. dried apricots
1 quart warm water
6 cups sugar
Juice of one lemon
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, undrained
Fresh Fruit to preserve the color.
5 pint jars
Soak apricots 3 hours in warm water. Process in a food processor with blade attachment until finely ground. Place apricots, lemon juice and the undrained pineapple into a medium pot. Add sugar, Fresh Fruit (as directed) and cook rapidly until thick, stirring often. Pour into prepared jars. Process with simmering water bath about 5 minutes. Cool jars completely.
Till next time........
