So our new neighbor offered us some apricots from his apricot tree, when he brought them by he brought us a whole bag full of apricots. As I was looking up recipes with apricots I decided that I would do my first try at canning (meaning first try ever). I have always heard that jams where easy, and lets face it with Brad now started and no neighbors to socialize with all day I have lots of free time during Charly's nap. So I went ahead and took the plunge.
|Here are the apricots that I started out with|
|Here they are after soaking in sugar for 2 hours as I start to cook them|
|And here they are in the jars that luckily sealed (I was afraid they wouldn't for a while)|
|And here is Charly's approval|
