Apricot Jam

Sweet warm homamade apricot jam over homemade bread, makes me think of my grandma's house!   This is my same recipe for strawberry jam or any jam you want to make. 

4 cups fruit, crushed in the food processor, I make mine really fine
4 c. sugar
1/8 c. fresh lemon juice, to preserve color (optional)
you can also add a large box of any kind of jello

Bring to boil fruit and 3 cups sugar stirring often. Boil for 2 minutes then add remaining 1 cup of sugar and (jello and lemon juice if adding)boil for 5 minutes. Fills about 2 1/2 pint size canning jars.  I put extras in the freezer.
