You know, there are a lot of apricots in a bushel. Wow! The apricot madness continues, this time with liquor.
FRUIT: 100 apricots
SOURCE: farmers market
COST: hard to know but probably about $15
RECIPE: I just made a simple syrup (sugar:water ratio of 1:2), heated the halved apricots in the syrup for about 10 minutes, put .25 c brandy in each hot sterilized jar, packed each jar with apricots and then topped it off with the syrup making sure I left a half-inch headspace. Finally I processed the pints for 20 minutes.
YIELD: 8 pints
TASTE: how could it not be fantastic?
