DIRECTIONS

  • Place the apricots, sugar, wine, and lemon juice in a large (at least 4-qt), thick-bottomed, stainless steel pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Place a couple small plates in the freezer, these will be used to test the jam later.
  • The mixture will boil and rise in volume. Skim off the pale yellow foam that forms at the top and discard.
  • The boil will subside to larger bubbles, but still bubble vigorously.
  • Be sure to begin gently stirring the jam frequently to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.
  • After about 25 minutes begin testing the jam by placing a small amount on a cold plate.
  • Allow 30 seconds to pass and then run your finger through it to see what the cooled consistency will be.
  • Boil for a few minutes longer if desired for a thicker jam.
  • Ladle into prepared jars leaving a 1/4 inch headspace.
  • Process jars for 10 minutes. Adjust time according to your altitude.
