Instructions Checklist
  • 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.
