1/2 Pound(s) Dried apricot halves

1 Cup(s) Golden raisins

1 Cup(s) Orange juice
2 Cup(s) Sugar
I received a great little book for Christmas called "From My House To
Yours" that has gift recipes, ideas and lots of little tid-bits. The
following recipe is from that book. I'll include the notes the author
wrote and will follow this message with the recipe for English Muffin
Loaf that he makes note of. Sonya "This is delicious with toasted thin
slices of English Muffin Loaf. Dried apricots sold in bulk are usually
more flavorful than the prepackaged kind; natural food stores are a
good source." Place the apricots and raisins in a bowl and add water
to cover. Cover the bowl tightly and let it stand overnight. Drain the
liquid into a large, heavy saucepan and chop the apricots coarsely.
Add the apricots, raisins, lemon juice and rind, and orange juice to
the pan, place over low heat, and bring to a simmer. Cook 20 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Add the sugar and continue cooking, stirring
frequently until the mixture of fruit is very soft and the syrup
sheets when dropped from the side of a spoon (220 degrees on a candy
thermometer), 15 to 20 minutes. Spoon the jam into sterilized
half-pint jars. Seal the jars, process in a boiling-water bath for 10
minutes and cool. Store in a cool, dark place. From Gemini's MASSIVE
