Apricot Jam (Hunza Special)

Its difficult to separate apricots and Hunza, specially after our trip to Hunza. Apricots here are so flavorful and juicy that they are almost like a new fruit for us. We decided to use the opportunity to make apricot jam which we consumed through out out trip. #HappyCookingToYou #FoodFusion #YeHaiHamaraPakistan
