1/4 cup lemon juice
6 Ball® Plastic (8 oz) Freezer Jars

pouches and lemon juice. Stir for 3 minutes.
3.) LADLE freezer jam into clean Ball® freezer jars
leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Apply caps and let jam stand in refrigerator until set, but no longer than 24 hours. Serve immediately, refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to 1 year.
*To prepare apricots: Do not peel. Pit and coarsely chop. Crush chopped fruit one layer at a time using a potato masher. For best results, use fully ripe apricots.
