Apricot syrup

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 ounces Dried Apricots
¾ cup Sugar
1 slice Lemon
4 Whole Cloves
5 cups Cold Water

1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the apricots with the sugar, lemon, cloves, and the water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the apricots are very soft, 1 to 1¼ hrs.

2. Discard the lemon slice and cloves and puree the mixture in a blender or food processor.

Makes about 2 cups.

Note: If the syrup has boiled rapidly and become too thick for your taste, add about ⅓ cup of cold water and bring the syrup again to a boil. This is a thick syrup, however, so avoid adding too much water.

This is especially fine on waffles or pancakes and will keep in the refrigerator for weeks.
