- 6 cups chopped apricots

- 4 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon
- 1 lime zested and juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice

Chop the apricots into small pieces. Measure out exactly 6 cups.
Place jars, rings and lids into a pan, cover with water, bring to a boil and boil for three minutes to sterlilize, keep warm.
In a heavy stock pot, place the chopped apricots, allspice, turmeric and ginger. Also add the butter, lime zest, lime & lemon juice. Mix everything together well.
Measure ¼ cup of sugar and mix it with the contents of the Sure-Jell. Sprinkle it into the apricots, mix well again and set it on the stove on high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
When it comes to a hard boil (a hard boil is one you can't stir down with spoon) add the remaining sugar.
Continue stirring constantly and return it to a boil and when it comes back to a hard boil, continue boiling it for exactly one minute. (Set a timer to make sure you get it for a full minute).
Remove from the stove & immediately ladle into sterilized jars. Place lids on jars, screw on tightly. Process in a hot bath (boiling water) for 10 minutes to seal the jars.
