      Title: Brandied apricot jam
 Categories: Jellies
      Yield: 3 Servings
 
      2 c  Dried apricot halves, halved
  2 1/2 c  Water
           Juice and grated peel of>>>>
      1    Orange
  1 1/4 c  Sugar
    1/2 ts Almond extract
      3 tb Brandy or Congac
 
  1) Combine apricots and water in a bowl, cover, and let stand
  overnight, or until soft and well plumped--abt 12 hrs. 2) Combine
  apricots and their soaking water in saucepan with the orange peel and
  juice and simmer for 5 min. 3) Add the sugar and bring to boil,
  stirring. Boil gently, stirring often, until the mixture is thick and
  shiny anb begins to clear the sides of the pan when stirred. While
  mixture thickens, be sure to stir it continually but gently, so that
  the fruit does not burn or get squashed. DO NOT ALLOW THE MIXTURE TO
  COOK DOWN TO A PUREE; it should retain good-sized bits of apricot.

  or more before serving.
