From the Kerr Blue Book I copied from my landlady Clara Thomas, probably from the 50s.
10 cups apricots, sliced
1 cup water
juice and grated rind of 1 orange
Wash, pit and slice apricots. Add water and cook until soft. Press through sieve. Measure and to each cup pulp add 2/3 cup sugar. Add juice and grated rind of orange. Cook to desired consistency (about 10 to 15 minutes). Pour into sterilized jars and seal while hot.
