Easy Apricot Jam Recipe

This apricot jam sauce is so easy to make and tastes great – perfect for a tasty breakfast! Apricot Jam SauceFruit compote (or what I like to call “jam sauce”) is a super easy & delicious way to use up some fruit! It’s not quite a viscous as a jam or jelly (no pectin), but it’s not really runny like a syrup. I love making it with all kinds of different fruit. In fact, I’ve shared a few here on the blog before! Our peach jam sauce and plum jam sauce are SOOoooo good! But, if you’re a fan of apricots, you’re sure to love this too! Mmmmm….Apricot Fruit CompoteThe beauty of recipes like this is that they are SO easy to make! This one only has 3 ingredients – it doesn’t get much simpler than that! Easy, delicious, and few ingredients!

  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  4. Fill your sterilized mason jar(s).

*We try to limit the amount of sugar in recipes and like the tarter taste of the fruit. If you think it's won't sweet enough for your tastes, you can certainly decide to add more sugar!
