Apricot Orange Syrup with Amaretto
Ingredients2 h 15 m servings 85 cals
- 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.
- 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...
