Marie is back with a jam recipe featuring rosemary from the south! All illustrated by Agency images.


1kg of ripe apricots
500g sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
1 branch of rosemary


Rinse, halve and remove the stones from the apricots.
Place them in a terrine with the sugar, the lemon juice and the rosemary.
Cover and allow to macerate for 12h (overnight) in the refrigerator.

Pour the macerated contents into a preserving pan.
Bring to the boil over a low heat, then remove the rosemary branch and allow the mixture to cook for around 20 mins stirring frequently.
Skim away the froth. Pour into jars!
