An easy peach and apricot jam recipe? Yes, please!
I love jam. At any given time, I probably have 5 jars in my fridge, and an unopened one or two jars in my pantry. My favorite is apricot, hands down.

In the summer, I sometimes go overboard with fruit. Especially peaches and apricots. You can’t really get them any other time of year. And when you do, they’re not good. So when I see some at the farmer’s market, I usually buy a bunch.
The trouble with apricots and peaches (well, any fruit really) is that once they are ready to be eaten, you have to eat them. It’s easy to over-calculate the number of peaches you can eat in yogurt or as a snack (who me?) It’s easy to have a bunch of perfectly ripe peaches go bad in front of your eyes. When you can only get them for a few weeks out of the year, that is a sad day.
So I make jam. Not a hardcore, sterilize everything in sight kind of jam. Just a simple mixture of fruit with a bit of sugar, lemon, and some flavoring. This is the kind of jam that will last in your fridge for a few days, so you want to slather it on toast or swirl it in every bowl of oatmeal you eat.
You can flavor this with whatever you want — bourbon, grand marnier, or if you want a liquor free option, you can use vanilla or almond extract. I chose chardonnay because I had some leftover and it seemed like it would compliment the fruit nicely, and it did.
If you like your jam really sweet, you can add more sugar. I made this peach and apricot jam recipe to taste mostly of fruit with just a bit of sweet.
