Dried Apricot Jam

READY IN: 9hrs
Recipe by dreamerPrue

If you like dried apricots you will love this as a spread for sponge cake etc, or just as jam on bread or scones. I have only ever made this using slab dried apricots which are very dry. I'm not sure if this recipe would work using the moist Turkish dried apricots.

I attempted making this using a half recipe in my breadmaker which normally makes jam quite successfully. The jam just didn't want to set. There also seems to be more sugar in this recipe than in others and a quick taste test revealed that the jam is very sweet indeed. I'm going to have to recook this and probably add some pectin.
