DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the apricots, raisins, oranges and lemon (both zest and juice), coriander, cinnamon, wine and water in a bowl; toss to combine thoroughly; leave overnight.
  • The next day, put the fruit and liquid into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer; simmer gently until the fruit is very tender, about 1 hour; add sugar and bring to a fast boil; boil about 12-18 minutes, or until a small amount of the fruit liquid, dropped onto a saucer and allowed to cool, wrinkles when your run your finger through it (this shows that the jam will 'set' once cool); stir in cashews, if using, and almond extract.
  • You can put up the preserves in canning jars in the usual way, or just keep refrigerated.
