Apricot Jam

Homemade Jam always tastes best, fantastic even!  When one of our kind neighbors gave us a large bowl of apricots from their tree I knew just what to do.  I reserved a pile for my children to eat, and with the rest I made jam.  Oh!  It is heaven in a jar. J

Apricot Jam
6 cups pureed apricots
1 peeled lemon
1 cup organic cane sugar
In a pot stir together the apricot puree and the sugar over medium heat.  Puree the peeled lemon and stir that in as well.  Bring to a boil then simmer for 10-15 minutes.  Pour into 7 or 8, 8 ounce jars that have been sanitized.  Screw on sanitized lids and process in a hot water bath for about 10 minutes.  Wait at least 24 hours before testing the seal.

Oh how good that looks. I bet I could make it with xylitol instead of sugar. I might even be able to use stevia.

These are the things I miss with being on a no sugar diet.
