Apricot Jam1

 Apricot Jam, Soft velvety textured fruit is quite a alien to Indian soil. We bought this fruit from a local vendor, and we heard this fruit as “Badami fruit”. After trying home made jam, Im very keen to try with different fruits. 

Homemade Jam are too good with roti, dosa my kids love to pair home made jam with our regular bread. This Jam can be refrigerated for a month, shelf life will short if its stored in room temperature. First time we bought good sweetened fruit, but in the second time the fruit was too sore. So I measured the ingredients for appropriate taste.
