where to buy apricot butter - providence
I'll be making Hamentaschen cookies for the Jewish holiday of Purim on Friday, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a place around town that sells apricot butter. Admittedly, I haven't looked everywhere yet (only Davis on Hope street and Stop and Shop so far), but I was hoping that someone could save me from a wild goose chase.
Buy some apricots, cut them up and cook them with a little water and some sugar. That's what I do for my Hamentaschen. I do the same with prunes. I add a little lemon juice and lemon zest to both, too. The supermarkets should have the apricots over by the raisins.
East Side Market, if they don't have it, is very accomodating. They'll order/stock anything you request.
PS: I like chocolate Hamentaschen personally :-)
