A little cooking surprisingly intensifies the flavour of apricots, bringing them more toward the concentrated taste of dried apricots.

Simple but divine. This recipe is a fabulous way to use up abundant apricots, such as I have dropping from the trees in my neighbourhood. I needed a freezer-friendly fruit preserve and this one is great! My kids and my partner all love it. We eat it in fresh yogourt or over warm oatmeal. YUM!
