Apricot-Mango Jam

Ingredients

  • 1 pound apricots
  • 1 pound frozen mango (I buy mine at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  1. wash/dry and cut apricots in half removing the pit
  2. with the fine tip of your knife slice down the center of the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds
  3. add everything to your pot and bring to a simmer so the sugar dissolves (this just takes a few minutes)
  4. put a lid on the pot and let the mixture sit overnight so that the fruit becomes macerated
  5. remove the lid and bring back to a simmer over a medium heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot
  6. when you can run your finger down the back of a wooden spoon and the jam doesn’t ooze back together its done.
  7. remove the vanilla bean and pour into a sterilized jar ( I used a 17oz jar from Ikea)

Enjoy !
