Apricot-Rosemary Jelly
pounds ripe apricots
4 1/2
cups water
3-inch sprigs fresh rosemary
1 3/4 ounce package regular powdered fruit pectin or 6 tablespoons classic powdered fruit pectin
7 1/2
cups sugar
small sprigs fresh rosemary (optional)
  1. Stem, pit, and coarsely chop apricots. Measure 18 cups chopped apricots. In a large pot combine the 18 cups chopped apricots, the water, and 3-inch rosemary sprigs. Bring mixture to simmering. Cook, covered, about 20 minutes or until apricots are soft. Cool slightly. Strain mixture through a damp jelly bag or several layers of damp 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth to extract the juice; discard solids. Measure exactly 5 1/2 cups juice, adding additional water if necessary.
  2. Transfer the 5 1/2 cups juice to a 6- to 8-quart heavy pot. Stir in pectin. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Quickly skim off foam with a metal spoon.
  3. Ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized half-pint canning jars, leaving a 1/4-inch headspace. If desired, add a small rosemary sprig to each jar. Wipe jar rims; adjust lids and screw bands.
  4. Process filled jars in a boiling-water canner for 5 minutes (start timing when water returns to boiling). Remove jars from canner; cool on wire racks. Makes 8 half-pints.
