Wash the apricots, cut them in half, remove the pits and peel the skins. Break the pits open and put the kernels back in the apricots, close the 2 apricots halves together.
Mix the sugar with 1 cup water and heat it up on a medium stove. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolves. Once the syrup comes to a boil, pour it over the apricots.
Let them cool, return the syrup to the pot, bring to a boil once more and pour it over the apricots once again. Repeat this process 2 more times. Then distribute the hot jam into jars, wrapped in moist towels. Close them and cool.
