Today we had a great and productive family day!
We had the fun of firing off fireworks together.
Then we finally started to harvest the apricots.
but there are a lot of them!
After washing them, we started to cut them up.
But given how many apricots we have,
I knew that was going to take forever,
so I decided to use my chopper to
speed things up a bit.
8cups apricots (pitted and de-stringed)
1/4cup lemon juice
Apricot jam bubbling; water-bath coming to a boil.
Time to fill the jam jars:
Now for 10 minutes in the water bath.
That's beautiful! :)
One of my readers asked what I was going to do
with my apricots. Well, this is the first step.
We're going to try drying some as well,
as well as get another batch of jam going.
Plus, we're just going to eat some
of them FRESH, of course!!!
