Apricot Syrup

Apricot Syrup on a Big Dutch Baby

“This stuff is absolutely amazing! The sweetness of the apricot is balance by just a bit of citrus. I can’t imagine a more perfect sauce. It’s great over breakfast foods like Mom’s French Toast or waffles, on coffee cakes, over cheesecake or a scoop of ice cream.” – April Ferre
