    Apricot~Vanilla Bean Jam


    My husband's favorite jam, in a nutshell.

    It might be your favorite, too. 

    Do you know how easy it is to take a pound or two of fresh organic fruit, and turn it into a jar of luscious jam?

    Do you have sugar at home?

    A heavy-bottomed shallow pan?
    A stove?
    Well, you're halfway there...

    This is what the beginning of Apricot~Vanilla Bean Jam looks like.

    "Goldstrike" Apricots, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla bean...macerating in a preserving bowl. Set it off to the side for an hour. Or put it in the fridge for a night or a week.

    When you're ready to make jam, it will be waiting patiently for you.

     Jam on your terms, to fit YOUR schedule.

    That's my recipe for success!
