Lemon syrup apricots-rec.
We have an apricot tree and every other year we get a bumper crop, this year is going to be one of those eeegads what do I do with all these cots year..Well I am giving some away but I am also going to make more of these..
1-c. cold water
1/4-c. sugar, or more to taste
2- 2-inch strips lemon zest
2-Tab. fresh lemon juice
1- in skillet large enough to hold about 8-9 apricot halves in one layer, combine wate,sugar and zest and lemon juice. Bring everything to a simmer on med.-low heat, swirl the pan several times for 10 min.
2. cut cots in half and remove pit. Plave halves in simmering syrup,cook, turning once til the fruit is tender, maybe 5 min.
3-Cool the cots briefly in syrup, then cover and store in refrigerator. Serve chilled say with a dollop of whipped cream flavored with ameretto or just plain whipped cream..
