Apricots after all

I decided I had enough to make a small batch of jam. So that is what is happening this morning. The jars are being sterilized in the dishwasher, the jam is bubbling on the stove. And all before we reach 106 degrees.

  1. Sweet job well done!

  2. Yum! My favorite. 🙂

  3. Oh wow! Congratulations! I’m drooling. I tried apricots off of my sister-in-law’s tree several years ago and could not believe how sweet they were. Wow! I’ve never had anything like it since.

  4. Beautiful jars of jam. Good for you!
