This research was conducted to prepare apricot jam from the pulp of fresh mature apricots by using artificial sweeteners .Apricots were washed with clean water to remove dust particles. After sorting and pitting, apricots were cut into two halves and dipped in 0.1% citric acid solution to avoid browning. The pulp of apricots was extracted by using plumper. Apricot pulp was heated to get the desired consistency. Low heating was continued and brix were noted after every 20 minutes. Pectin with small amount of non-nutritive sweeteners were dissolved separately and added to the mixture. Apricot jam can be used for the lean period, as Ladakh remains cutoff from the whole world at least for six months. The possibility of converting fresh apricots into jam has been investigated in this study that showed a great promise in its manufacture. The samples were studied for their chemical characteristics up to 90 days of storage. The parameters (i.e.), Titrable acidity, pH, reducing sugar, Total sugar, TSS were determined in apricot jam. Physico-Chemically the mean values of the results were 1.01, 3.52, 36.4, 53.64 and 68.00 respectively.

Keywords: Apricot, Pectin, Jam, TSS, Sugars
