Delicious and beautiful, too. It sounds excessively sweet, but the lemon juice does cut the sweetness. I add less sugar anyway, between 4 and 5 cups. Also, different brands of pectin have different instructions for use. Follow the instructions on your pectin. Very good with the addition of about 1/2 cup of slivered almonds, added just before processing.


  • 1 1/4 cups dried apricots
  • 1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 (6 oz.) pkg. liquid fruit pectin
  • 1/3 cup slivered maraschino cherries, well drained


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.

Servings: 8 (8 oz.) jars
Prep Time: overnight Minutes
Cooking Time: 10 Minutes

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.
