8 ounces dried apricot halves, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
How to Make It
In a small saucepan, combine the apricots with the orange juice, lemon juice, vanilla and salt. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the apricots have plumped and the liquid coats the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
The apricot filling can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week.
