Before starting this Apricot Jam recipe, make sure you have organised all the necessary ingredients.
Cut the apricots in half and remove the pits.
Combine the apricots and castor sugar in a saucepan or a jam pan.
Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes...
... at a gentle boil.
When cooked, pour the boiling jam into glass jars. The jars have been washed with hot water beforehand.
Cover with the lid and flip the jar upside down, until completely cooled down. Alternatively, close the jars with a sheet of cling film and an elastic band. Wipe one side of the cling film with a clean, wet sponge...
... and use to cover the jar. It will seal easily. Close with an elastic band. Set aside to cool.

how do we assess if the jam is ready?
Thanx for the apricot jam recipe. it is one of my favorite jams and i am always looking for the best go to recipe for it.
I have following questions regarding this recipe: 1) For how long do we cook the jam?
2) In the past when i made apricot jam, it developed mild caramelize flavour at the end of the cooking. I feel this reduces the intense flavour of the fruit. I cooked the fruit and sugar till 104 C on candy thermometer. What could i be doing wrong? Or how can i avoid the caramelization flavour of the sugar?
