 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  pounds        Apricots -- halved and pitted
    3                    Nectarines -- pitted and
                         skin on
    3      cups          Sugar
      1/4  cup           Lemon juice
    1      teaspoon      Ground cinnamon
    3                    Cinnamon sticks
                         Combine apricots -- nectarines, sugar an
           in            
                         Medium pan over medium-high -- heat, stirring
 until
                         Dissolves.  Continue cooking -- until jam
 thickens,
   30                    To 35 minutes.
 
 If you're leery of making jam because you don't want to go to the
 trouble of canning, consider this easy-to-make freezer jam. Cook the
 fruit with sugar and spice, spoon it into freezer containers and put it
 away. A few months down the road you'll be very glad you did. Remove
 from heat and stir in cinnamon.  Pour jam into plastic freezer
 containers and place cinnamon stick in center of each. Let stand until
 cool.  Cover jam and store in freezer. Makes about 3 2/3 cups.
