Last year I've made a ton of Prune Jam, and it went quick. Guests asked for seconds and by the time we shared a few with family and friends, it was down to little.
Apricots are quite popular in foods, such as yogurt and jams, for its flavor. But also, apricots are no less flavorful and thus make a great candidate for jam.
BTW - if you are afraid of canning, you will actually find it easier to do than making the morning pancakes. So don't worry, go for it and impress you loved ones!
This makes 1.5 quart of jam.
