Preparation / Directions:
Cut or grind apricots into small pieces. Soak apricots
in water overnight (after cutting).
Add lemon juice to pineapple and let stand for 2 hours more.
Bring to a boil and add sugar, stirring constantly. (Be sure your boiler is
enough as this boils up.) Boil for 30 minutes and test. (I put
a teaspoonful in a saucer and put in freezer until cool, move
around to see if thick enough if not, I continue to cook a
little longer.) If apricots are tart, they thicken quicker.
When ready, put into dry, hot jars. (I heat mine in a hot
oven.) Seal with paraffin.
Note: Add nuts and cherries 5 minutes before you finish
cooking. Makes lovely gifts.
