How do I make it ?
Pit, but do not peel, apricots. Finely chop. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared apricots into large saucepan. Add sugar and lemon juice; mix well.
Bring to boil on high heat; cook 1 min.
Remove from heat. Stir in pectin.
Stir and skim 5 min. to prevent fruit from floating to surface. Pour immediately into warm sterilized jars, filling up to 1/4 inch from rims. Cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until set.

How to Accurately Measure the Sugar
To ensure accuracy of the sugar measure when preparing jams or jellies, use a dry measuring cup to measure the sugar, then place all the measured sugar in a separate bowl before adding it to the fruit mixture in saucepan.
Bruised, overripe or blemished fruit should not be used when making homemade jam. For best results, use fruits that are just at their peak of freshness. Measure any juice with fruit.
