Preparation steps

1.

Rinse the apricots, cut in half, remove the seeds, and coarsely chop. Rinse the currants, remove the stems. Place the currants with the apricots in a saucepan. Add the sugar and lemon juice. Let sit, off heat, for 2 hours.

2.

Add about 100 ml (approximately 1/2 cup) of water to the fruit and bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes. Line a strainer with cheese cloth and strain the fruit. Squeeze the cloth to get as much juice as possible. Place the juice in a pot and add enough orange juice to have 800 ml (approximately 4 cups) of liquid. Boil with the jam sugar and orange liqueur. Cook for 4 minutes while stirring. Once the jelly sets when spread on a cold plate, it is finished. Transfer the jelly into clean, sanitized jars. Tightly seal the jars and let rest for about10 minutes. Leave to cool. Serve as desired.

Tip: To preserve the jam/sauce for longer, you will need to process the jars according to manufacturer's instructions, or visit http://nchfp.uga.edu/.
