Blue Ribbon Habanero Apricot Jam

From "Taste of Home," the blurb accompanying this recipe read: 'This zippy and versatile jam was a blue-ribbon winner at our county fair. I mix it with applesauce as a condiment for pork, with cranberry sauce for poultry and with cream cheese as a spread on celery sticks. It's a beautiful color...and in "hot" demand as a gift item!' -Janet Eckhoff, Woodland California

    This jam came out beautifully! Set to a soft jam and spreads well. The flavor is unbelieveable I took it too market and sold out! Had to make more for this week!
