We were gifted with apricots this week!  I didn't realize apricots could grow so abundantly here in our region.  They are tiny, but abundant and so flavourful!  We also had purchased gorgeous larger organic apricots from the Palatine Farm in Niagara-on-the-lake area, through the local food buying group The Good Peach.  These were great for drying and freezing, but the tiny local ones were just right for jam!  They almost made themselves into jam, and didn't need much of either sweetener or pectin to turn out a perfect jam.  We like to use Pumona's low sugar pectin.  Our 7 year old helped me make jam, with lots of fresh apricot tasting along the way, and then wanted her "own" jar of jam so she could decide when and how to eat it (by the spoonful it seems is best!).
