Apricot-Orange Butter
Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups coarsely-chopped apricots
1/2 cup chopped orange
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 1/2 cups sugar

Prepare home canning jars and lids according to manufacturer's
instructions. Cook apricots and orange in water until tender. Press
through a sieve or food mill.

Combine apricot and orange pulp, lemon juice and sugar in a large
saucepot. Cook until thick enough to round up on a spoon. As mixture
thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking.

Ladle hot butter into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Adjust
two-piece caps. Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

This recipe yields about 3 half-pints.
