Apricot Jam

 This is a childhood memory at grandma's house..
Well, I have never imagined that one day I could make my grandmother's recipes and I would find them easy to make!
These memories come back when Harry brought me home more apricots than we can manage.
So, let's start with the recipe!
For 1kg apricots I used 600gr sugar and juice of 1/2 lemon [if you prefer more sweet taste, you can use 'till 800gr of sugar].
After washed and cut them in half, bring in a pot with the sugar and leave them sleep all night in the fridge.
Next day, bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
Once mixture reaches a rolling boil, add the lemon juice and continue to boil it for some minutes, stirring frequently to prevent it from sticking.

[The jam should turn a darker colour and should jell when cool]
Remove from heat, fill jars and turn upside-down. Then let them cool completely.
To be honest I always put a double layer of butter on my bread but it's been two weeks that I avoid these kind of habits
 [you know-because of summer-body-crisis] !
Have a nice day and see you soon :)
