Delicious,easy and pretty!! I whipped this up in a snap and served it still warm on vanilla ice cream. Yummy- DS loved it too. I think I will thicken it a bit more next time(probably a bit of a rush on my part and not enough fruit in the end as I under-estimated the amount I would end up with once I "chopped" my can of apricot halves in the food processor). I am thinking on serving this on a nice angel food or pound cake tomorrow with a fresh creme for company to top off an nice bbq rib dinner. Thanks for a nice recipe Syd!!
Easy and very "fruity"! I made a double batch of this and then used it as a base for homemade ice cream. A terrific recipe, which was bursting with flavour. I did make one tiny little change, well an addition really; I added a glug of apricot liqueur to the sauce that just intensified the flavour even more! A keeper for me Syd - thanks!
So easy and so yummy! and I am SO DISSAPOINTED that on this dreary dull rainy day that I couldn't capture the deep deep golden orangy yellow colour MUCH better, as it's simply wonderful. Do be aware that the cornflour (cornstarch) and sugar mix will fool you, I think it was really liquid for about 1-2 minutes and then it got thick in 10 seconds and I had to whisk hard to keep it smooth, so keep the heat low and don't be tempted to wander away even for a second :) After I added the chopped apricots I saw a few clear lumps in mine and they were hard to get out so I cheated and used the stick blender to make it better. And Better it was... I like this very much indeed, YUM!!! I am tempted to put in a bit more cornstarch, less juice next time and turn it into a pie filling, I think it would be a hit :) Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a versitile, inexpensive and easy recipe that I will be pleased to keep in my recipe collection. Thanks!
