How to make apricot jam for winter.

  1. To make apricot jam in winter, arrange the fruits, remove the spoiled ones, very soft and hard. Fill the apricot with cold water in a bowl and leave it for five minutes. Then wash and put in the bottle. Transfer the apricots to a towel and let them dry completely.
  2. Cut the apricot in half and remove the stones. Now weigh the fruits և measure the right amount. Pour the apricots into a jam or a large saucepan, sprinkle with sugar and leave for 12 hours until the apricots release their juice.
  3. Pour water in apricot, mix and put on medium heat. Gently stir with a wooden spoon so that the sugar is evenly heated and does not burn.
  4. When all the sugar is dissolved, bring the syrup to a boil. Lower the heat a little, the syrup should not boil too much. Start cleaning the foam, otherwise you will not get clear syrup.
  5. Cook the jam lightly, stirring occasionally for 45-50 minutes. Check the preparation of the jam, pour a drop of syrup on the glass, leave it for a minute, then turn the glass in different directions. If the jam is ready, the drop will not spread.
  6. Remove the jam from the heat, cover with a towel or cloth and cool completely. Transfer the frozen jam to clean, dry jars and close the lids. Store at room temperature.
