Makes about 2 ½ cupss
This filling is intended for Hammantaschen cookies. See also Prune Filling (Lekvar)
1 1/2 cups dried apricots, lightly packed
1 cup water
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup chopped or sliced almonds (optional)
- In a saucepan, combine apricots and water. Simmer, covered, for 25 to 30 minutes, or until very soft and most of the water has evaporated.
- Uncover if necessary for the last few minutes of cooking.
- Remove from heat, mash, and stir in brown sugar.
- Then stir in almonds if using.
You can keep this, like Lekvar, in the refrigerator for a long time. Put it in a canning jar.
