Sometimes eating a fresh apricot is a little disappointing, but when the flavour intensifies through the jam making process, then I think it is out there on its own. The season for fresh apricots comes and goes before you know where you are, but if you are lucky enough to land on a glut of this rather unusual fruit, it's well worth making a decent quantity of jam.

This is an alternative use for a freshly baked loaf based on the olive oil French sandwich style known as the 'pain bagnard'. This is made with three different sorts of tomatoes, so if it’s not the summer time, you can heighten the flavour of it by roasting some with balsamic vinegar and sugar and then using some sun dried tomatoes.
