“Found this on-line requested by a fellow Zarrie needed for my Lekvar (LEHK-vahr) Kugel recipe #53841( I was able to find it canned. A thick, soft spread made of fruit (usually prunes or apricots) cooked with sugar. This Hungarian specialty is used to fill a variety of pastries and cookies. Lekvar can be purchased in cans or jars in most supermarkets.”
