Preserved Apricots in Brandy

I find preserving food for later on in the year quite a comfort like you will gather from my previous posts (!) Even though in the U.K. it’s been rather a wash out of a summer, I thought it’s still perfect to bring out a jar of preserve during those long days of winter.

I came by making this preserve after buying an excellent punnet of apricots at a local shop. They were destined for something more than a pie or a crumble I thought.

A search on the old ‘tinternet’ came up with a recipe. It ticked all boxes for ingredients I already had in. It seemed a quick reliable recipe from Waitrose.com I halved the recipe and it filled a small kilner jar. I can visualise my chewy meringues with whipped cream and the ultimate touch of preserved apricots and drizzles of brandy syrup oozing down the sides. This is what I call sheer bliss…

The link for the recipe is here and you will also gather it is quick for anyone where time factors come into consideration too.
