Fill Jars With Sunshine

Cover the bottom of a pot with water; throw in sliced apricots; sprinkle over sugar; cook, stirring once in a while, on low-medium heat, until fruit has melted; taste and add more sugar if too tart; fill clean glass jars with sunshine; keep in fridge and eat with yogurt, ice cream, on toast, sprinkle with granola, make into an apricot crumble or apricot bars. Or give to a friend.

today, one year ago: my 10 words


  1. Mmmmm! I always say that apricots are one of the very few fruits that are better cooked (unless you're in a warm country with a tree growing in your garden that is!) Gorgeous post & recipe xox

  2. oh yes please. sounds simple enough that maybe i could manage it! :)

  3. Sunshine, pure sunshine. And the second tree I planted at out new home? An apricot of course.

    I love them quick frozen and dried too.

    Love you,

    S (I'm supposed to be writing right now, but it looks like hookey to me)

  4. those look like beautiful gems! I would love some with yogurt right about now!!

  5. Hi there, I just wanted to say that today is the first time I'm viewed your blog (via your comment on A Day In The Country) and I really enjoyed it. I used to live in Europe and have a number of angel babies in heaven (and one three year old baby girl here at home!!). I also love & adore the country life....working to make my own life more "country". So I felt some things in common. Look forward to following your blog!

  6. Couldn't find apricots at the Farmer's Market today. So, I'm gonna give it a go with the yummy peaches we bought :D Thanks for this post...can't wait to eat this yummy goodness!

  7. delicious! i will have to make a trip to the farmer's market this weekend!

  8. dawn...your photographs are so beautiful...this looks wonderful...

    i have an heirloom blenheim apricot in my garden..and YEP...not ONE apricot on it this year...or any year :-{

  12. Yup, I've been jamming too - we've done raspberry, apricot, peach and cherry...I think I'm all jammed out. Some are a little too runny for my liking too despite tests etc...a little annoying! xxx
