Apricot Jam with Kernels

2 lbs. apricots

4 cups sugar

1/4  cup water

»  Mix water and sugar in a large saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes until syrupy.

»  Add the halved apricots and the kernels to the syrup. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook on medium heat for 2 or 3 minutes. Set aside for about 6 hours. Later, bring the rested jam to a boil once again, cook for a few minutes, then set aside for another 6 hours.

»  To finish the jam, bring the rested jam to a boil a final time, then pour into prepared jars and store in a cool place.
