Apricot-Raisin Jam
Categories: Apricot, Jam, Gift
Yield: 6 servings

1/2 lb Dried apricot halves,
-coarsely chopped
1 c Golden raisins
Juice and grated rind of 1
1 c Orange juice
2 c Sugar

I received a great little book for Christmas called "From My House To
Yours" that has gift recipes, ideas and lots of little tid-bits. The
following recipe is from that book. I'll include the notes the author
wrote and will follow this message with the recipe for English Muffin
Loaf that he makes note of. Sonya

"This is delicious with toasted thin slices of English Muffin Loaf.
Dried apricots sold in bulk are usually more flavorful than the
prepackaged kind; natural food stores are a good source."

1. Place the apricots and raisins in a bowl and add water to cover.
Cover the bowl tightly and let it stand overnight. Drain the liquid
into a large, heavy saucepan and chop the apricots coarsely. Add the
apricots, raisins, lemon juice and rind, and orange juice to the pan,
place over low heat, and bring to a simmer. Cook 20 minutes, stirring

2. Add the sugar and continue cooking, stirring frequently until the
mixture of fruit is very soft and the syrup sheets when dropped from
the side of a spoon (220 degrees on a candy thermometer), 15 to 20
minutes. Spoon the jam into sterilized half-pint jars. Seal the jars,
process in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes and cool. Store in a
cool, dark place.
