I made this for my Papa, he mentioned how his mom used to make apricot syrup when he was growing up, so luckily I found this recipe and surprised him with it. I halved the recipe added a few more apricots and almost halved the honey. It thickened up quite a bit in the fridge so I heated before I used it and it was very good.
