  1. Before attempting to cook this recipe, you must come to terms with your mortality in lieu of your almost certain death.
  2. Bring the apricots and caster sugar, 3 cups' worth, as well as the apple slices to simmer and then turn down the heat, letting it cook for a further 4-5 hours, until gloopy in texture.

  7. Place your iced jam on top of the grill, and cook for 2-6 minutes.
  8. In the unlikely event of your persisting to be alive, return to Earth and serve your grilled iced apricot jam on a round of toast for a delicious and fruity breakfast!
