A quick homemade apricot preserves, ready in just ten minutes. This recipe is also relatively low in sugar. As with all my cooked fruit recipes, I love spooning this apricot preserves, while still warm, over thick, creamy plain Greek yogurt.
Serving size: 1/4 cup
Makes 8 servings
Total time: 20 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
1 pound fresh apricots
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch kosher salt
1. Remove apricot kernels and cut into bite-size pieces.
2. Place apricot in a heavy saucepan with the sugar, lemon, vanilla and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
3. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, 10 minutes, or until apricots are very soft and are beginning to caramelize.
4. Remove from heat. Cool slightly, then spoon over plain Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream. Cool leftovers to room temperature, then transfer to a tightly sealed jar to use on warm toasted bread. This homemade preserves should keep about a week in the fridge.
