'Homemade’ Dried Apricot Jam
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
A food processor quickly chops the apricots, although you can do it by hand. The mixture will continue to thicken as it cools. After stirring, place some preserves on a plate and watch to see if it thickens after 5 to 10 minutes. You can place the jam in sterilized jars and refrigerate if you will be using it within several weeks. For longer storage, employ proper canning techniques.
