This recipe was handed down by my jam-making friend, Kat. The dried apricots give this jam an intense flavour. Try to use some good-quality Australian dried fruit.


500g dried apricots

6 cups water

1½ kg sugar

½ cup passionfruit pulp


Chop fruit and cover with water. Soak for 24-36 hours.

Transfer to large saucepan and bring to boil. Add sugar and boil until set (30-50 minutes).

Remove from heat and add passionfruit pulp. Stand for 10 minutes, stirring now and again to distribute.

Pour into sterilised jars, wipe with vinegar and seal.
