Expert Tips

This brightly colored jam doesn't need much to say Merry Christmas all by itself. Simply: Use fancy cut-glass jars and homemade decorative labels to add that sparkle. Top it off with a piece of decorative fabric or paper, and tie with a matching ribbon. Package it with a holiday tin filled with Apricot Jeweled Scones.
