Combine the apricots with 2 cups water and let stand 4 hours, or overnight (I start with hot water, I think it works better. The apricots seem to rehydrate better, and puff up bigger).
Strain the liquid into a large saucepan. Finely chop the apricots. Add the apricots to the saucepan along with the pineapple, sugar, and lemon juice and bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute stirring constantly; remove from heat and stir in pectin and cherries. Skim off foam. Stir and skim for 5 minutes. Ladle into hot jars leaving 1/4 inch head space. Process for 10 minutes.

This is a sugar free apricot jam made with dried apricots, citrus juices and spices, along with Splenda as a sweetener. You can keep it in the fridge or the freezer.
Yield: 4 cups
You need 6 cup peeled and shredded or grated zucchini. No water. Just low heat, simmer (10 minutes) stirring constantly, then add: 6 cup sugar, 1 cup crushed pineapple including juice, 1/2 cup lemon juice or real lemon juice.
Boil 6-10 minutes (all of it). Remove from heat. Add 6 oz. apricot Jello powder (2 small boxes and 1 large box). Makes 4 pints, put in jars and seal. Makes beautiful yellow jam. So very good!
Boil another 15 minutes. Add 1 large and 1/2 of 1 small package apricot Jello Mix well and seal as for jam. I like apricot flavor Jello the best, but any flavor works equally well.
