Almond Apricot Jam

"There's no added sugar in this jam, so even if you're watching your diet, you can enjoy it on your morning toast,' notes Mary Fenske of Bricelyn, Minnesota. 'There's no need to wait for harvest season to make it either, since the recipe calls for dried apricots. I often give this chunky spread as a gift to my four grown children and 10 grandkids.'"

I used vanilla extract instead of almond, which changed the recipe quite a bit, I know, but it was delicious. I simmered the apricots longer than 25 minutes, probably around 35, because they wer...

An excellent no sugar, no pectin recipe...quick and easy too! I used the really good, full-flavored California Slab apricots (not the Turkish-Mediterranean ones) and they mashed up just fine. ...

I really liked this. I spread it on the Apricot Oat Muffins from this site, and it was really good. I followed the recipe exactly, but found that after simmering there was still ALOT of liquid...

I order Apricots from a apricot "farm", thus they always come in by the pounds. This recipe was great for getting rid of some of them, and I used it in the apricot cream cheese bars recipe on th...

Very good. I would use 2 cups of apple juice instead of the 2 1/2 cups. I mixed half of the batch in the food processor and the other mashed down a little bit and mixed the two together so tha...

The taste is amazing! I used canned apricots and just blended them, cooked and added the almond and cinnamon. I'd definitely make it again! I did add some sugar to my liking though.

What a wonderful recipe similar to apple butter, but far quicker! I liked it a even more before adding the cinnamon and almond extract, so I'd recommend tasting it before adding them. I also fou...

Very good. The almond extract gives it a nice amaretto flavor; bordering on too rich! I upped the cinnamon, too. The apple juice does indeed make this extremely sweet, so perhaps going with p...
