WOW, this is fabulous! I made the syrup as posted and put it in the ice cream machine; it made the most wonderful apricot sherbet I have ever had anywhere! What a delicious treat! Thank you sooo much for posting, Suzie_Q!
This turned out perfectly. It is just the right consistency to use on pancakes or waffles and it tastes fabulous!
