Apricot Jam

A little wee touch of blackberry liqueur brought some nice complex flavour to this batch of jam.  The short jars on the right are my favourites (from the huge lot that I discovered at our local thrift shop a while back).   I LOVE the old fashioned shape and the lettering in gorgeous script (Dominion Gem and Improved Gem).  It'll be hard to give them away :)

I've got a batch of strawberry syrup simmering on the stove, but I'm not happy with it.  It's too pulpy for my liking, so I might have to strain it.  Harumph!  Will update when I come out from under the steam!


  1. Oh yum, I love homemade apricot jam. Brings back memories of mum's when I was a kid, she would only ever make apricot lol but it was so worth it!!
    I have never tried to make jam and I know I should. I need to start collecting some jars ready for when it is apricot season here, you have inspired me!!
