Apricot Amaretto Jam
This Apricot Amaretto Jam is another recipe which was inspired by my travels in Bella Italia! Amaretto is an almond flavored liqueur which comes from a small city in Italy called Saronno. The word amaretto is Italian for “a little bitter” which is strange because the Amaretto drink has a distinct sweetness to it!
Almondy Amaretto pairs really well with apricots and that’s why I use it in this jam. It’s really quick and easy to make. Simply mix the fruit and lemon juice together with some sugar and pectin which is used to thicken the jam. Add the sugar and once you remove the pot from the heat, add the amaretto. You will need to use a canner to ensure the jam is preserved.
