My favorite apricots (Blenheim) arrived at our Farmers' Market last week and my kitchen has been in a flurry ever since. I invited a good friend over this year to join in this EASY microwave jam session. The recipe (which makes 2 half-pint jars) is HERE.
I decided to get a bit more creative with my tops this year. In addition to fabric circles tied with baker's twine, I also went down to Sur La Table and got some fancy cupcake papers to turn up-side down and tie onto some of the jars. They had so many GREAT choices it was hard to decide which ones to get. I'm getting so into this now that I think I'll paint or color some apricot tags to attach to the jars, too. I got a new batch of apricots this morning so it's off to the kitchen again! SUMMER IS SUCH FUN!!!!!!!!
