    Tasty. I used fresh cooked yams over the canned. I did have to do some thinking on my feet though in regards to the apricots. Can you believe it, our store didn't have any canned ones? So, I used reconstituted, dried and used the water as the syrup along with the juice of the orange to make a cup of liquid. I also used the zest of the entire orange. Oranges are very expensive here, so don't like to waste any of it. I slivered the apricots, so they wouldn't be too chewy. I do believe it worked out very well. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag Game. :)
