Step 1: Cut Apricots and Sterilize Mason Jar Lids
If you have a apricot tree, like me, you need to pick 2kg of apricots (I know...easier said then done.) If not then buy some at your local fruit market. Then wash them thoroughly. Lastly prepare your apricots by cutting them in half then those halves into thirds. (basically into sixths.)
Once that is done then put your mason jar lids into a pot of boiling water to sterilize them.
Step 2: Mix With Gelfix
Put the 2kg of apricots into a big pot with two packages of Gelfix and four tablespoons of sugar.
Step 3: Bring to Boil
Bring the mixture to boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one minute. Then blend with a hand blender.
Step 4: Add Sugar
Add the 700 grams of sugar and stir. Bring to boil thoroughly again. Boil for 5 minutes.
Step 5: Ladle Into Clean Mason Jars
Make sure that the mason jars are clean (I put them through the dishwasher) and ladle into jars. Turn them upside down for 5 minutes. Flip them upside up and listen for the pop that tells that they are closed tightly.
