Apricot Jam and Cherry Preserves

What did you do on Sunday afternoon?  We were toiling over the hot stove.  But oh, was it worth it.

Apricots macerating.  Courtney cut these up the night before and let them sit for quite a while.

We made a batch of Apricot Jam and a batch of Cherry Preserves.  No pectin needed.  Just fruit and sugar here.  We used recipes from the Art of Preserving again.  Here are a few teaser pics from the end of the process:

And of course we had one more of each that was a partial jar which we’re eating now.

Thanks, Robert.
