Recipe's preparation

    Apricot Jam
  1. 1. Wash jars in warm soapy water. Sterilise by your chosen method.

    2. Wash, halve and destone apricots

    3. Weigh into Closed lid 1000gm of apricot halves. Add 400-600gm of sugar (to taste). Chop for 10 seconds on Speed 9

    4. Add juice of one lemon, mix for 5 seconds on Speed 5

    5. Cook for 40-60 mins on Varoma temp, Speed 2, with rice basket on top of the lid (no MC) or until setting point is reached.

    6. Pour hot jam into sterile jars, put lid on and tighten. You will hear the little button on the lid pop when it sucks in as the jam cools.

Tip

If boiling over occurs turn up the Speed to 3!

Older, squishy fruit will take longer to set than younger, greener fruit. Better to test after 40 mins than make concrete with 60mins!

I like it with less sugar than the average person so feel free to use less if that’s how you like it too.

Makes 2-3 jars
I have always sterilised my jars with boiling water. - Boil the kettle in the last 5 mins of the jam cooking. Pour boiled water into clean jars and lids, and let sit. When jam is ready, tip the boiled water out of the jars and fill them straight away with hot jam.

Store un-opened in the pantry for months. Store in the fridge once the seal is broken by opening.

    good idea is to place a silicone egg ring onto TM lid and then place simmering basket on top of it. no more splattering.

    Today I’ve been making this with 1.5 kilos of apricot halves, 500gm sugar, about 50gm lemon juice (I’m using 3 small lemons) and cooking for 45-50 minutes.
    Works well and no boiling over at Speed 2 in the Tm5.

    Apricot jam to die for! Perfect recipe thanks. No burning pots and no bubbling over yeah!

    We love a more tangy taste . With 1 kg very ripe fruit, I used 350g sugar. Cooked for 1hr. Tested regularly after 45 min.
    One batch did not gel, I decided to bottle anyway.

  • I made 2 batches of apricot

    Submitted by Jannellica on 15. January 2016 - 14:02.

    I made 2 batches of apricot jam - first was this recipe using 350 G sugar as not a fan of sugar and apricots were sweet and ripe and found the jam was very thick and quite dark like paste  However tasted good.

    2nd batch was from LittleLush cooks - which had same ingredients, fruit was not chopped up at start, half the cooking time of 20 minutes and on 100 degrees. Perfect for me as still some texture of apricots, not as thick, bright in colour and an extra jar of jam was made. Tastes devine.

  • If you use a silicone egg

    Submitted by muggleton on 27. December 2015 - 18:54.

    If you use a silicone egg ring and place it on lid then simmering basket on top of this gives it a bit more "breathing room" I find this method is really good and the holes in the bottom of the simmering basket don't clog up so quickly.

    I've made this jam twice now and it worked perfectly both times. Easiest way to make apricot jam with apricots from the market  ($2.99/kg yesterday) I have ever tried. I've found that 1 batch makes 2x 450ml jars with a bit left over to try. I'll be giving some away for Christmas. Thanks for the recipe.

  • Having moved to Tassie

    Submitted by Sarah_Ol on 23. January 2015 - 09:58.

    Having moved to Tassie recently I am in awe of the produce that is available, I have never enjoyed fresh apricots until now! (don't get me started on the cherries and the raspberries...)

    Made this jam to try and keep a little bit of summer alive for a few more months. Used 400/450gms rapadura sugar and slightly misread the recipe adding everything in together. 46mins and perfect jam. Great recipe thanks for sharing. Love

    Used 600g sugar and was done when I checked it at 42 minutes.

    I added 50 mL of Disaronno Amaretto right at the end, then mixed it through for a minute.

    Submitted by Stacizzls on 22. January 2015 - 13:38.

    Love this recipe!!! I used this in my TM5 which I've only owned for 5 weeks. It's the first time I've ever made jam in my life. I used jam sugar as I had it in the pantry and thought might as well use it up (I had about 400gm and topped it up to 500gm with raw sugar). Followed the recipe exactly and cooked for 40mins. I had no idea what a 'setting point' was but thought because it stuck to the spoon it would set. Turned out perfect and so very yum. I licked the bowl after!

    Yum! Halved the recipe, used 300g sugar and cooked for about 45mins. (checked after 40 and probably could have/should have stopped then). Waiting for it to cool, but have already sampled some on toast that didnt fit in the jar and it was delicious

    So easy and tasted delicious. Used 500g sugar and cooked for 40 min with simmering basket on top instead of MC - perfect consistency once set -  not too runny and not too thick. I wouldn't want it any sweeter - I used very ripe apricots.

    Made two batches of this using apricots from our tree. Had 1100g in the each batch which I covered in 500g of sugar and let macerate for a few hours. Added 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and cooked for 40 minutes using the above method and it was perfect consistency and flavour.

    Very nice jam. The apricots were still a little green and I used 600 g sugar. After 55 minutes I tested it. Tasted good but on cooling it was a little thick. Next time I will only cook for 45 minutes.

    I made this last night in my brand new TM5 "Herman" who is my first Thermomix and cooked it for 60 mins. It tasted great but was super thick so next batch I will do it for less time. Also might leave the apricots and sugar overnight to get more juice like the traditional way.

    Submitted by Thermomix in Australia on 21. January 2014 - 14:48.

    Hi seaside jo,

     

    Did you place the simmering basket on the top of the lid as suggested in the recipe? That helps prevent splatter, but also allows steam to evaporate.
