  • 2 lbs pitted apricots
  • 1 lb sugar
How to cook:
  1. Wash and pit fresh, soft, ripe apricots.
  2. Weigh apricots and mix them with half their weight of sugar. So, if you have 2 pounds of pitted apricots, use 1 pound of sugar.
  3. Cook the sugar and apricots on a low heat on top of the stove, until the sugar melts. Do not let sugar brown or burn. This should take less than five minutes.
  4. Spread fruit/sugar mixture in large, rimmed sheet pan. Place pan holding the fruit inside a larger pan.
  5. Place both pans outside, in the sun. Pour water into the larger pan, forming a moat around the smaller pan holding the fruit. By placing the fruit filled pan inside another pan filled with water, you protect the fruit from ants that may try to encroach on the fruit spread. Cover fruit pan loosely with cheesecloth to protect the fruit from bees and other insects.
  6. Keep the fruit pan in direct, hot sun until it thickens to a jam-like consistency. If it has not thickened over the course of one day, bring the pans inside at nightfall, and bring the pans outside the following day until the fruit has reached desired thickness. Depending on the heat of the sun and the quantity of fruit you use, this may take between 2 – 7 days.
