Apricot Recipes

Puree/Leather (USU Extension)

1 lb (approx 3 1/2 cups) apricot pieces
1/4 t ascorbic acid
2 T sugar

Dry for leather. I froze my puree.

Apricot Lasse

Add to one recipe of Puree:
2 T more sugar (adjust as necessary)
1 C yogurt*
1/2 - 1 C milk*
ice cubes

Blend all together.

*The original recipe said 3 C yogurt and no milk, but it was too yogurty, so we just decreased the yogurt and added the milk.  If you use store-bought yogurt, use plain, or make your own yogurt.

Apricot Nectar

Add to one recipe of Puree:
6 T sugar (or adjust as necessary)
4 C (1 quart) water
1 T lemon juice**

** I'm thinking the lemon juice is just necessary for bottling, not freezing.
