Step by step recipe


Stage 1
Apricot jam with vanilla
Mix 100 g caster sugar with 30 g jam gelling agent in a bowl.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 4 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Prepare 1 kg 100 g apricots and place in a bowl.

Weigh your apricots to ensure the right fruit-sugar-gelling ratio. If you don't have 1 kg of apricots at this point in the recipe, recalculate the correct weights with this little calculator:
Apricots : grams
rec=1366

Stage 3 - 4 hours
Apricot jam with vanilla
Add 700 g caster sugar, mix rapidly, then cover and leave for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Stage 4 - 15 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
If possible, extract the nutty kernels from the apricot stones.

Set aside.

Stage 5
Apricot jam with vanilla
After the apricots have been left to steep with the sugar, the juice will have made a syrup.

Stage 6 - 5 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Tip the contents of the bowl into a high-sided pan (ideally a jam kettle) on high heat and bring to the boil.

Stage 7
Apricot jam with vanilla
A lot of froth will form to begin with; this is quite normal.

Stage 8 - 15 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Then the froth will subside or reduce to just a thin coating on the fruit. This is the sign that it's sufficiently cooked.

You can remove any remaining froth with a skimmer.

Stage 9 - 2 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Ad the sugar+gelling agent mixture to the pan with the juice of 1 lemon, amonds, and the inside scraped from ½ vanilla pod.

Stage 10 - 5 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Bring back to the boil, stirring from time to time. Continue boiling for 3 minutes and your jam is ready.

Stage 11 - 4 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Divide out into jars and put the lids on while still hot.

Stage 12 - 1 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Turn the jars upside down so that the remaining air in the jar passes through the scalding hot jam to sterilise it.

Stage 13 - 2 min.
Apricot jam with vanilla
Turn right way up and leave to cool before storing in a cupboard. There is no need to refrigerate this jam.
Remarks
If your apricots are not very ripe, you can cut down or leave out the lemon juice.

Do you like the idea of almonds in jam? If so, add the same weight (or more) of flaked almonds to the apricot kernels.
Keeping
Several months.
