      In a small sauce pan heat the apricot preserves and mix in the orange segments with the liqueur, simmer for a couple of minutes.

      OH MY GOSH IS THIS GOOD! I made it for Thanksgiving and my family (15 people) devoured it. Even the non-beet eaters. My mom didn't care for the sauce, but she's the only one out of 16, so I'm going to consider this a huge success.

      A delicious treat! I ended up using apricot pineapple preserves. Yum! Thanks! I made this for the German Preserve Challenge for the World Tour!
