This recipe sounds good, but the directions are as confusing!! Do you start with fresh apricots or with canned apricots in syrup?? What is the "syrup to soak fresh" that to soak the fresh apricots in, prior to drying them, so they don't discolor or to "freshen" the dried apricots?? My sister has an apricot tree and would love to know more about this recipe!
