Another great recipe from my book.

It doesn't get much simpler, and you don't have to worry about scorching or burning when slow cooker is used. Since this recipe uses dried apricots, you can make it any time of year. Make an extra batch to give to friends or relatives for a special homemade gift.

Apricot preserves are my very favorite, and this is an excellent way of making them..Yum!

How to Make Lazy Apricot Preserves (Crock Pot)

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a food processor, process the apricots until very finely chopped. (I use my pulse feature).

    Transfer to slow cooker. Stir in sugar and water.
  • 2Cover and cook on high setting 2 1/2 hours, stirring twice, if possible.

    Uncover and cook on high, stirring occasionally, 2 hours longer, or until the jam has thickened.
  • 3Ladle the jam into clean, hot canning or jam jars; seal according to the manufacturer's instructions with lids and ring bands. Process in a boiling water bath 10 - 15 minutes.

    Or let jam cool and store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.

    For longer storage, freeze up to 3 months. I have frozen this, and works very well. Using my food saver.
  • 4For Apricot - Orange Jam:

    Stir in 1 Tbsp grated orange zest at the end of the cooking time..
