Apricot Orange Syrup with Amaretto

Recipe by  

"My parents have an apricot tree, so I've eaten fresh apricots all my life. I'm used to eating them fresh only, but I recently purchased some apricots that ripened very quickly. I wanted to make a jam or syrup out of them and couldn't find what I wanted, so I made something up. The result is a very sweet, thick syrup. Leave out the amaretto if you don't use it in cooking."

Directions

  1. Mix together the apricots, sugar, vanilla extract, orange juice, and amaretto liqueur in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, until the apricots are soft and have started to release their juice, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until the apricots have broken down, about 1 1/2 hour. If mixture is too thick or begins to burn, stir in 1 tablespoon of water and mix well.
  2. Stir cornstarch into 1/4 cup water, and pour into the apricot mixture. Bring to a boil, and simmer until the mixture forms a thick syrup, about 30 more minutes.

Yum! Made it without the amaretto and it was fine. Ended up needing lots of extra water and much less boiling. Also used less sugar.

Even though I didn't carry this recipe through to the end (using the cornstarch), I'm giving it the full stars because it was thick and yummy without the last steps. I think each piece of fruit (or each harvest) is so different in sweetness and in liquid that it is very good to have this alternative for thickening this syrup. I didn't even cook mine as long as it called for. This will be perfect for adding to my breakfast oatmeal, my Greek yogurt, mixed with sour cream for my pancakes. And the list just goes on. Very nice! Thanks for the recipe, pomplemousse!

made it with peaches, only cooked it for about 45 minutes, and skipped the whole cornstarch thing (just a silly idea-it's plenty thick without!) very sweet, but i think i may make a large batch and can it for the winter months. it was very yummy over pancakes.
