How to make dried apricot jam?

Soak 100 g of dried apricots overnight in just enough water to cover. Add 100 g of sugar and simmer slowly until the apricots are really soft. Add more water a spoonful at a time if in danger of burning and stir. Cool, then push through a sieve and it will be fine for tart making.

Personally, I would just buy a jar of jam or use any jam to hand. It really does not HAVE to be apricot after all. Good luck!

My english mastiff has an apricot colored coat, but her 15 other brothers and sisters are fawn why?

It's perfectly acceptable, it happens. Do you know if her dad is fawn as well? If both of her parents are fawn, the chance of an apricot pup is 4% while the chance of fawn is 95%. (The remaining 1% is brindle.) If her dad was apricot, it was a 47% chance of an apricot pup. If her dad was brindle, it was a 5% chance. So, while it's very possible and isn't unheard of, I'd say that if both her parents are fawn, you do have an original girl! (; Actually, come to think of it, if both her parents are fawn, she really does fit the 4% approximation closely.. She's one of a litter of sixteen, and one sixteenth is about 6%.

Most of the seeds will be hybrid and purposely can't reproduce.

I buy small trees and my little tiny five fruit variety orchard with only five trees is growing splendidly and produces nice fruit.

Growing my apricot tree from a pit?

The fact that it flowered is encouraging, but it may not set fruit. Most free-stone pitted fruit trees are sold on a special root stock to which branches of specific types of a given fruit tree are grafted in. This assures that the mature tree will set fruit and will be the best type of tree for the climate of a particular area.

As the other answerer mentioned, you may have to wait a long time to get the tree to actually start fruiting. Even then, the tree may just flower but not set fruit.

But, hey, you've gotten farther than most people get so far. Might as well see what happens.
