Apricot jam with vanilla
I love apricots, really do. Especially when they are in the peak of the season, super sweet and homegrown. This homemade jam is made with 4 ingredients only: apricots, sugar, vanilla and lemon. Every year we make as much marmalade and jams as possible, as the whole family loves them. We always use homegrown, local fruits, which means, we can not make every jam every year, but we try to make the most out of what nature provides. We were lucky to get a lot of delicious, small, sweet apricots, perfect for a jar of yummy jam. This 4 ingredients recipe is simple, easy to make and the jam is not too sweet.

Lets get cooking!
