Recently I went to the wholesale market to buy the ingredients for the confectionery. There's now going on chaos fruit. Every day trucks arrive, packed to seasonal fruits and berries.

This time I could not resist and bought 5 boxes of apricots. I decided that this year I will make just a lot of reserves of apricot jam. To quickly process a number of apricots, I took advantage of their proven formula.

The beauty of this recipe in a short cooking and less sugar. In order to reduce the cooking time and the amount of sugar I add jam pectin. Pectin - a natural thickener, which is found in most fruits and berries.

Since the pectin is not always available in most shops, I adapted the recipe for Zhelfiks, which is almost any supermarket.

Cooking method


1 kg apricots pitted
500g sugar
10 grams of pectin or 1 pack zhelfiksa 2: 1
5 g of citric acid

To puree add the chopped apricots and put on medium heat. 3 tablespoons sugar mixed with pectin (zhelfiksom). When fruit mash slightly warmed, rain Pour pectin (zhelfiks) with sugar and stir until uniform.
