Raw Apricot Jam

5 from 3 reviews

Instant, homemade vegan apricot jam made without refined sugar. Super simple and gluten-free.


  • 3 cups unsulphured dried apricots
  • ¾ cup maple syrup {or agave, brown rice syrup, etc.}
  • 1½ tbsp lemon juice {or a big dash of salt}


  1. Place apricots in a glass bowl. Cover with hot water and let soak for a few hours to soften up {or for a quick version, cover with boiling water and let stand 15 minutes}.
  2. Strain apricots and place in a blender or small food processor. Add sweetener and lemon juice and blend into a smooth consistency. Taste and add a bit more lemon juice if you like your jam tart.. If your blender is struggling to blend, add a little bit of water {I didn't, but I use a Vitamix, which can handle blending things better}. Enjoy!
