Homemade Organic Apricot Butter with No Pectin

I completely tried something new when I made this and it worked out beautifully!  This is really a smooth jam that spreads just like butter.  I read somewhere that fruit butters have more fruit to sugar content than most jams.  I like this recipe a lot!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 15 or so organic whole apricots with skins left on, chunked [5 cups of organic apricot puree]
  • 2-1/2 cups of organic cane sugar
  • 3 Tbsp organic lemon juice

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Puree the apricots until smooth; No one will know that the skins are in there.
  2. Add the apricot puree and sugar to the bottom of a large, heavy-bottomed stockpot.
  3. Heat the mixture to 220° Fahrenheit as that’s the stage where it will gel, stirring often.
  4. Place the butter into hot, sterilized jars leaving 1/4″ headspace.
  5. Follow the proper water-bath canning procedures.
  6. Enjoy!
