Apricot Jam recipe with 3 ingredients

Prep: 5m | Cook: 30m | Total: 35m | Yield: 1 kg


  • 1kg Apricots, cut in strips
  • 850g Sugar, plain
  • 1 ½ Lemon, the juice
  • 1 cup water


  1. Wash the apricots, take off their core, and cut them into strips.
  2. Add water in a saucepan over high heat and add the sugar, the lemon juice, and the apricot slices.
  3. You may stir the jam only one time with a wooden spoon in the beginning and do not stir again.
  4. Bring to a boil and let it cook for 2 min on high heat.
  5. Reduce to low heat and let it simmer for about 30 min.
  6. The jam is ready when it “stays” in the back of a spoon and does not fall off immediately.


  • The jam will be a little thin when it is still hot but when we will add it to the fridge, the jam will thicken and will come to the perfect density that a jam needs.
  • Avoid stirring the jam so that it does not become sugary. If you must stir it do it only with a wooden spoon and slow circular movements.
