Your Favorite Recipes Using Dried Apricot?
CVS has Sunsweet Apricots (16 oz) on sale this week for $1.99 - regularly over $4 I think - I got 2 for $1.98. :)
Now, what to do with them? I did some web searching for recipes and came up with a few such as:
Apricot Squares from allrecipes.com
Apricot Oat Bars http://www.wildoats.com/u/recipedetai...
Apricot Bread http://www.haddockweb.com/ApricotBrea...
Heavenly Apricot-White Chocolate Chunk Cookies http://www.recipezaar.com/26712
But I was wondering what your favorite recipes using dried apricots are.
I use them in Silver Palate Chicken Marbella with Prunes. It is a great dish.
Also soaked in wine and slivered very thin with Mesclun and Goat Cheese Salad.
This isn't really a recipe, but I love to add them to a cheese plate. Some dried apricots and toasted hazelnuts go really well with manchego and some apple slices. I also saw a recipe for chicken with dried apricots--a Rachael Ray recipe. Maybe it's still on the FN site. I've had it in my head since I have a bunch of them from Trader Joe's...
Not a very exciting suggesiton, but I chop them and add them to granola with almonds and golden raisins. I use Deborah Madison's granola recipe.
