I posted this picture on Facebook earlier this week, and asked people to guess what I was making. Now I will share with you the GREAT recipe!
I was at the Cornerstone Market in Stow (at the corner of 91 and North Moreland Rd.) and saw they had fresh apricots. I have been wanting to try making something, ANYTHING with apricots. So on the Pinterest I went and found a great recipe from the website Family, Food and More (www.familyfoodandmore.blogspot.com).
The recipe on their website was made in the crockpot, but I already had Blueberry Butter in the crockpot, so on to the stove-top it went. As I let it simmer, and the smell was AMAZING. Let me say that again…..AMAZING!! The apricots literally melt down, and the tomatoes blend in to make a wonderful, sweet, slightly spicy sauce. The recipe is simple, and I canned the first batch I made. I have a feeling there will be a few more batches coming VERY soon!
