This is a delicious jam and is heavenly over vanilla ice cream. It makes a relatively "small" amount (I want to say a batch makes 2 pints) but since it was a couple years ago, I'll know more after I make another batch. I made it several years ago, and came back to print the recipe again, people who I gave it to for the holidays was asking for it, so you know it has to be good when someone asks if you're making "that" jam.
I love that its made from dried apricots because i can make this jam any time of year, not just in the summer.
