If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.
~Henry David Thoreau
The fruit rising to the top is very common in home canning and nothing to worry about.More importantly, where did you get apricots?! Are they local? I want to make jam so bad...
That looks amazing! My mom and I just made three batches of strawberry freezer jam a couple of weekends ago when they were here. Yum! Our fruit rose to the top of the jars too. It happens every time but once we mix it up, it's fine.
Yummy! Fruit always rising to the top with canning. You can pack your jars more so there isn't so much room to rise if it really bugs you. :) You're inspiring me to get some canning done now..... bugger. ;)
