My original review may not have been clear enough. I would like to say that I followed this recipe strictly as to method and ingredients, including the use of a blender that would meet the standards of an American kitchen, until I found that it was not acceptable. At that point, I strained the mixture, which added about 20 minutes on to the time, and did improve the appearance and texture. I also added 1 tablespoon superfine sugar, but the resulting product was still quite tart. My original review began with, "I strained", and ended with "tart". This was my experience. It may have been that the apricots were not fresh enough to blend smoothly and/or were particularly sour. I don't know. I like apricots and was disappointed. I have only friendly feelings toward the poster of this recipe, and I believe that she posted the recipe because she enjoyed it and wanted to share. I am writing this review so that other people will know what might happen - not will happen - but might happen. I hope this is clear. (I originally gave 3 stars and am not changing that.)
I made this tonight and oh my it turned out very nice. it was smooth (i used the blender) very tasty and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks Bekah. Its a keeper.
