Today I present you my Apricot Jam recipe. Apricots are a welcome addition to my breakfast table. Apricot jam is a fine fruit spread without a long shelf life.
The sugaring of jam is a NoGo for me, because nowadays I don’t cook for a year or longer, but for the pleasure of the fruit and the homemade.
I only use raw cane sugar for my jam. I like this sugar because it comes to us unrefined.
My apricot jam, which is called apricot jam in Bavaria and Austria, can be kept in the refrigerator for about 6-8 weeks.
Let’s see how long the jam stays with you in the fridge, mine is mostly eaten after 2 weeks.
I wish you good success in cooking jam. Good luck!
1. Apricot Jam without preserving Sugar
Apricots are called apricots in Bavaria and Austria. Season from June, apricots that you can find in the supermarket from December to March come from overseas. I always let the taste decide and if the apricots are not too sweet, then these come into my glass :-).
2. Make Apricot Jam step by step yourself
Wash the apricots, halve them, remove the pit, quarter them and place them in a bowl that can be covered.
Once in the bowl, I add brown raw cane sugar, vanilla pulp + pod, a little lemon juice and a Stamperl of rum and mix the apricots lovingly. Closed with a lid, the apricots can now marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
Marinate the apricots overnight and the taste will be perfect!
The next day cook in the apricots in a pot or in the Thermomix for a maximum of 35 minutes. Then I mix the wonderful fruit mix. In the Thermomix even the vanilla pod is crushed! Finally, the apricot jam is passed through a fine hair sieve:
Now carefully pour the jam into clean glasses. I like to use a dough scraper so that no leftovers remain in the pot.
Then close the jars tightly and let them cool in the refrigerator.

3. Apricot Jam not only comes on Bread, with me even on the Wall!
The homemade apricot jam comes preferably on the Croissant JA! MHHH delicious!
As my apricot jam tastes sweet and sour, it goes very well with game and poultry. Here a duck breast with side dishes and apricot… the blue decoration in the jam I have set with red cabbage juice (dots), then with a chopstick pull through!
So the apricot jam makes it to my wall: As the last picture I show you a work of art of mine, a unique piece! It’s a dimmable light installation, that’s all I can tell you…
Wish you good luck cooking your jam!
