    Lemon Ginger Scones and Apricot Jam

    I’m feeling blessed. Blessed with the opportunity to pour my creative juices into writing and photographing a cookbook, blessed with all the summer bounty of vegetables and fruit. I’m completely consumed by all of it, as well as an upcoming life event.

    My older son is going off to college soon, and I’m savoring every moment I have with him. While he’s not going far in the geographical sense, he is taking a giant leap out the door and into a different world, not quite the “real” world, but a demanding one for sure.

    We just need to iron out a few things related to his health, and the rest is in his hands. It’ll be good for him, and for me. I’m putting aside my mental cautions so that the focus is on the present, not on what has happened, or what could happen. It’s a wide-open field, and it’s his to explore. I’m just paying the cell phone bill so I know he has a way to reach us.

    I’m so confident that everything is going to go well that, after we make the drop off to the college dorm, I’m taking off for a photography workshop in Italy. The timing just worked out that way. So much going on, and so much to be happy about.

    As for this scone recipe, it is very basic, with a sweet citris-ginger overtone. It’s just waiting for some jam, jelly, or preserves to complete the flavor. It’s also dairy-free—a departure from my cherry and walnut-raisin scones, which use yogurt and are egg-free.

    Among the more seasonal blessings is the great taste of all the fruit this summer. I’m a berry girl first and foremost, but I never forget about all the other amazing other fruits piled high in the markets right now. I’ve included a recipe using juicy apricots, but you could easily swap in nectarines, plums, or any variations of these juicy treats. I like using apricots because I don’t have to remove the skins before cooking.

      Thanks so much – this recipe is going in my cookbook! I made this for breakfast today and it was hard to stop at one….so I didn’t!

    2. I wanted to let you know it gets easier sending kids off. Last year I sent my 2nd daughter to school 4 hours away, eating gluten free and I worried…for about two weeks. It gets better with a little time. The trip to Italy sounds exciting, have fun! Oh and the scones look scrumptious, I will be trying them soon.

    3. I can’t wait to try these scones. The photography workshop sounds like fun. And in Italy! I hope it’s a blast!

        Thanks Helene! I’m so glad you came to Seattle. I’m getting the best food styling and photography crash course I could hope for. Can’t wait for the final day!

      Hi Erica,

      May sound like a silly question can you use ground ginger instead of fresh ginger for this receipe and if so how much would you use.

      Hi Erica

      I’m commenting on such an old post of yours but I just wanted to write you a note and say – I love your site! Lots of great ideas and so inspiring. I can’t even remember how I stumbled across you but I’m glad I did! Will definitely be pinning some recipes to try out 🙂

      I love this recipe.
      I’ve never seen a GAPS recipe for jam I will be using this a lot when we have fresh strawberries around.
      Thanks so much

      Can you substitute other fruits in your Jam recipe?
