Slice apricots up finely.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine sugar and lemon verbena leaves.

In a sizable bowl, combine the apricots and sugar-lemon verbena mixture.
For four hours, marinate covered in the refrigerator.
4 jars should be checked for cracks and any rusty rings should be discarded.
Immerse until jam is ready in simmering water.
Clean rings and new lids in warm, soapy water.
Add pectin to the apricot-sugar mixture after transferring it to a big pot.
Bring the mixture slowly to a rolling boil that won’t stop bubbling when stirred.
Cook while constantly stirring for one minute.
