Apricot Jam

Let’s prepare tasty apricot jam (a recipe for five minutes without stones) with whole halves of fruits and thick amber syrup. Jam is very fragrant and moderately sweet. Thanks to the fast method of preparation, fruits keep not only their taste and color, but also the maximum amount of vitamins. Delicious and fragrant fruit soaked in syrup can be served for tea, pancakes or cheesecakes, as well as used to impregnate sponge. For a recipe, it is better to use fresh, dense and sweet fruits without any damages. If desired, the jam can be supplemented with a cinnamon stick or a small amount of lemon zest.
