a few apricots and a whole lotta sugar
Scary, I know!
Yesterday was an extra-ordinary canning day, because I did all on my own!!! Ok, yes, I did make one, maybe two, ... or possibly dozen several phone calls to the mother... But still! I did it *almost* all on my own!
My in-laws have an orchard and the apricot tree was FULL to the max. The husband loves apricot jam. However, I didn't want to overwhelm myself before I even began, so I only did a half-bushel yesterday, but its a start, right? I ended up with 11.5 pints and 2 quarts. I was quite proud of myself :)
And I must say, that apricot jam tastes dang good!
PS: I love that the Pugsleys' have an orchard... Its so quaint :)
