No-Cook Apricot Jam

Apricot Jam
Prep Time: 
15 minutes prep + overnight soak time
Number of Servings: 
9 oz (4 mason jars)
Recipe Source: 


  • 18 oz dried organic apricots, chopped into 12 inch cubes 
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp honey


  1. Put apricots in a bowl, cover with apple juice, and set aside to soak overnight.
  2. The next day, add lemon juice and honey to apricot mixture and purée to a smooth paste with an immersion blender.
  3. Bottle into cold, sterilized jars and store in the fridge or heat-process by waterbathing using the hot-pack method for 10 minutes 


Keep no-sugar jams in the fridge or freezer, and only make small quantities because they don’t keep. If you want to store them for longer than 2 weeks, you should heat-process the jars afterward by waterbathing. Often no- and low-sugar jams are sweetened with apple juice and have no added sugar, although strictly speaking they shouldn’t be sold as jam unless they contain a certain percentage of sugar.

Note that no-sugar jams do contain fruit sugars, so they are not suitable for diabetics.
