Honey Apricot Jam
Jams are a fantastic way to preserve the season's flavor. Here, honey takes the place of refined sugar, blending its own sweetness and flavor with the fruit. Like sugar, honey acts as a preservative, however, honey is sweeter, so less is used. Be sure to store jams, spreads and jellies in a cool dark place, as their color will fade if they are in too much light and heat.
Healing benefits: apricots are high in iron, potassium and carotenes. Great for anemia and blood deficiencies.
Energetics: sweet and sour in flavor, apricots enter the Lungs and Spleen. They help to regulate blood sugar and build blood. Honey nourishes and moistens the lungs. The jam's energetics will shift with the spices added
Primary season: summer
