This so easy a winner every time. Made 4 kgs for the gran kids

Perfect. recipe Just right

I’ve never made jam before and this was so easy!! Very happy with my beautiful result, using home grown fruit.

Just made this, so easy and great result, boiled for 5 mins and added squeeze lemon jiuce, made six medium jars. Will definitely make again!

Nice easy recipe… Our problem is setting jam is way to expensive, love Chelsea products as they generally produce good results.. However have to use competition products as more specials at prices that fit with our lower budget…

Well that was definitely less phaffing about than my last apricot jam recipe. If you've got better things to do with your time then this is the recipe for you, thanks Chelsea.

I recently made apricot jam using this method. Used 1.5 kilos of apricots and 1kg of sugar, boiled for 20 minutes. Absolutely incredible

Can't believe how easy this is compared to the American recipes I have just been looking at. They make the whole process unbelievably complicated! They even 'process' the jars after bottling the jam! Talk about overkill! One even said to PEEL the apricots! Why would you? The skin is where all the goodness and flavour is.

Made both peach and now apricot jam easy and delicious, will try bottling the fruit now for later use.

lip smacking

Yummy jam and recipe is very easy to make.

A brilliant method to make bright coloured jam! Wonderful results! I did make two minor changes.... I cook 1 minute longer in a Le Creuset saucepan and add 2 Tbsp lemon juice.

Quick & easy made great jam.
