Recipe

Valais apricot jam

Valais apricot jam, Valais, Switzerland

Preparation

  1. Wash and stone the apricots then cut in half.
  2. Put the apricots and sugar in a pan and bring the mixture to the boil, stirring constantly to avoid it sticking to the pan. Simmer on a low heat for roughly 30min.
  3. Blend the apricots until smooth.
  4. Put the jam into jars while still hot.

 

The jars and their lids or seals have to be sterilised before being filled: this, and filling the jars while the mixture is hot, will help your preserve last longer.
