Pour in jars. Before you put the lids on, you should boil them in a small saucepan for a couple minutes, it helps them seal better when they are processed (sealed). Put the lids on the jars and place in a large pot, fill with water until the jars are covered. Put a lid on the pot and when it comes to a boil, set the timer for 20 minutes. This will seal the lids.

I love summertime because produce is fresh and at it’s best! My mom and I picked apricots and made jam the other day, so I thought I’d share our endeavor with you. It’s easy and oh so good.
Here are your ingredients: Apricots, Lemon Juice, Pectin, and Sugar.
Add lemon juice and pectin. Stir until it starts to boil. When it is boiling, add the sugar and when it is boiling again, let it boil for 1 min.
Voila! Homemade jam! Sure to impress! Great for gifts! Here are some super cute labels you can put on your jars too if you are giving them away. Misspicklespress on Etsy! $15 for a pack of twelve.
