Apricot jam doesn’t have to be sweetened with sugar. It is inherently sweet so there is no need for further sweetening!

Apricots have such a brief season I usually miss it entirely so I love to get some organic, unsulfured, dried apricots for a treat. Dried apricots concentrate the flavors and the sugar so try not to eat too many! I like to make this apricot jam and I usually do not even use any honey because the apricots are so sweet. You might taste it before finishing just to make sure it is to your taste. You can add a bit of honey if need be.

Then it would be Two Ingredient Apricot Jam.

Dried apricots have a lot of fiber which offsets the sugar a little. They are also high in beta carotene, have some vitamin E and are a good source of potassium and magnesium, with some calcium as well.

Eat this jam as part of a meal with adequate protein and fat to balance the sugar. Otherwise you can just treat yourself to something sweet once in a while!
