We have a beautiful Apricot tree that yields tons of fruit! So this year instead of making Apricot Freezer Jam I'm going to freeze Apricot Fruit Spread. I just made a cup of it to make sure it was wonderful AND IT IS!
---side note---I know I'm always saying things are AMAZING etc...everything I make is not amazing. I only put the great stuff on the blog. There is much that doesn't make the cut...in fact I made bran muffins the other day....trash can. It was sad.
This is the same recipe as the Homemade Strawberry Fruit Spread.
Apricot Fruit Spread
1 cup crushed Apricots
1 T corn starch
2 T sugar
1/4 c water
I crushed the apricots in this handy tool. I've had if for 5 years but just barely realized it...lol That says bad things about my cupboard organization.
In a small bowl mix corn starch and sugar
add mixture to crushed apricots (I took the skin off of mine) in a large microwave safe bowl
microwave for 10 min
DONE - makes about a cup
Keep in refrigerator for 2 weeks or freeze forever (ish). I hope to freeze a lot this year :)
This was thicker than the strawberry fruit spread. You can always play with the amount of water you add. Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!
