"I just made this up. I wanted something different than the usual apricot jam so I added some almond extract and cinnamon. When you open the jar you can smell the almond but it isn't overpowering. They both are mostly a background taste. It is a softer jam but not syrupy. Great on bread with peanut butter. UPDATE: It did jell up after about a month."

"This was absolutely wonderful and easy to make. DIVINE!"
"We have made this jam twice and it has turned out perfect both times. (last time was 28 pints) We use less sugar then the recipe calls for, but our apricots were very ripe and sweet. excellent tasting jam that reminds me of Christmas. The kids love it."
"I've made this twice now. I have used your suggestions for extract and cinnamon but the pectin box for the amount of fruit and sugar. Here (in the US) our box is 49g so it was enough of a difference not to want to risk it not setting right. This time I used the "pink box" which for less sugar. It called for 6 cups fruit and 4.5 cups sugar. It was still plenty sweet. The regular box calls for 5 cups fruit to SEVEN cups of sugar! From tasting the bowl afterwards, I'm tempted to up the amount of cinnamon and maybe even the extract to get a more pronounced flavor."
