Purists should look away now!!
I made these little jars of jam yesterday using the Microwave. It was so quick and easy. It took a maximum of half an hour and no mess.
All you need is:
500 g apricots
¼ cup lemon juice
Microwave for about 6 minutes in a large container with the lid on.
Add 2 cups sugar, stir. Microwave for about 16 minutes with the lid off.
I want to thank a lady named Helen who provided the recipe on an online quilting group I belong to. She says it also works with nectarines.
