Apricot sauce

Here's my sauce and jam....
...and here are the recipe's, passed onto me by Gordon and Tina Williams several years ago.....

Apricot Sauce
1.2 litres of white vinegar
2.5 kgs of Apricots
1 dessertspoon of ginger
6 teaspoons of salt
1 dessertspoon of cloves
900gms of sugar
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
4 onions
Mince the onions and apricots, add all of the other ingredients and cook for one hour, stirring occasionally. Bottle

Apricot Jam
2.7 kgs of Apricots
2.7 kgs of sugar
2 and 1/2 cups of water
10 kernels from the apricot stones
Split and stone the apricots and place the fruit in a pot with the water. Cook slowly until the fruit is pulped. add sugar and boil for 15-20 minutes. Test and bottle.

And of course, if your into paper craft make some labels...just for fun !

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
