Apricots and sugar heating up.
The apricots are softening.
So, I bought some gorgeous, fresh apricots recently and have just been enjoying them on my dining table as they’re just so pretty. However, why let good fruit go to waste, so I asked Jack what we should do with them. He thought of muffins, I found a scone recipe, he enthusiastically agreed to go the scone route, and then I said what about apricot scones and apricot jam? Sold. This recipe contains two ingredients -apricots and a little sugar- and allowed me to get out my candy thermometer which I’ve used twice now, never on candy.
C, I found this in the Good to the Grain book you gave me. Another win. Delish! Scones will follow in the morning.
