Total Time 4 hours 10 minutes


  • 3.5kg Apricots
  • 2.5kg sugar
  • Zest and juice of one lemon
  • 1x 50g pack Jamsetta.


  • Cut apricots into half's/quarters and remove stones.
  • Add apricots, sugar, lemon & zest to the slow cooker.
  • 3hrs on high with the lid on, stirring occasionally; 1hr on low, lid off stirring occasionally.
  • Blend (I like it smooth and thick v's chunky).
  • Jamsetta is optional, makes it set thicker. I got a cup, used half of the jamsetta pack & some of the pured fruit to mix and added it in. Bottled it up and done!

  1. When I have made it in the past on the stovetop I always put a couple of kernels in. Apparently it helps with setting. This looks just so easy. Happy New Year Pauline x

  2. Made this twice in the last 2 days. First batch was very runny. Second batch, I cooked for an extra hour on high and set perfectly. I have a Breville Meal Maker (model SLC50) slow cooker.

  3. 5 stars
    Planning on making Apricot Jam in slow cooker.
    Just one question, do I use the tea towel method? To prevent it from being too runny.
