Cooking Instructions:
Half the apricots and stone them. Place in a large pan will all the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer until the apricots are quite soft. Remove the apricots from the liquid and layer in sterilised jars (putting through a dishwasher and sealing as soon as finished is fine) to just below the top.
