- Recipes & Random Thoughts
- I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

3 pounds apricots (about 21)
3 cups sugar
1 tbls lemon juice
Wash and pit apricots. Put half in food processor and pulse until evenly chopped. About 15 pulses. Remove to large dutch oven. Do the same with the rest of the apricots. Add sugar to dutch oven and mix with fruit. Add lemon juice. Cook over medium heat stirring often until sugar is dissolved and jam thickens. Pour into clean jars. Makes about 1 quart.

The food is good even if things are a bit messy. The kitchen smells like fresh bread and the apricot jam is divine. Like a good, sweaty, productive workout, I feel satisfied with my efforts even if I'm a bit disheveled.
There will always be dishes to wash and things to put away even if it's just a salt and pepper shaker but my kitchen has muscle and I flexed it today.
