Tight Wad in Utah: Apricot Fruit Spread

Apricot Fruit Spread

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 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  That says bad things about my cupboard organization.

In a small bowl mix corn starch and sugar
add water
add mixture to crushed apricots (I took the skin off of mine) in a large microwave safe bowl
microwave for 10 min
 - 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!

Hey, thanks for this recipe! We canned apricot jam today, only getting 8 jars after a lot of work. I had a little bit of apricot left and decided to try your recipe! It's in the microwave right now and I think it's perfect. I used up all my apricots! Yay!
