I made a half batch of this a while back to see if I would like it… It’s from one of my favorite canning cookbooks, “Small Batch Preserving”. I liked it so much I made a whole batch today to can. It is so good! It is wonderful on English muffins, pancakes, waffles… The honey and candied ginger give it such a lovely warm flavor!
2 cups chopped dried apricots
2 Tbsp grated lemon rind
2 cups water
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped candied ginger
2/3 cup honey
1. Chop apricots, grate lemon rind and chop ginger.
2. Combine apricots, lemon rind, water, lemon juice and ginger in saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, reduce heat and boil gently for 35 minutes or until apricots are tender, stirring frequently.
3. Place apricot mixture in a food processor or blender and process until smooth; return to saucepan. Stir in honey. Return to boil, reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered until very thick, stirring frequently.
