Title: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: trudy on February 09, 2014, 11:14:28 am
I have been making this wonderful sauce since reading about it in Annabel Langbein's Simple Pleasures Book.  I bottle this, keep it in the fridge and have kept it 12 months without it spoiling.  You can also make this using plums.  It's great with fish (cook fish and then pour over a little sauce bring to the boil and serve), pork (place browned pork chops or sliced pork fillet into casserole dish, pour over a good amount of sauce and cook till tender, 180C) with chicken, I preheat oven 180C.  Place 6-8 chicken thighs into an ovenproof dish.  Add 3/4 cup sauce and 1 thinly sliced red capsicum.  Spread in a single layer and bake until golden and cooked through (about 40 mins).

I usually double the recipe and cook it on the stove, but today decided to make it in the TM.

Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce

Place into the TM:-
500g fresh apricots - destoned
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1-2 long red chillies or more if you like it hot - chop finely
1 teaspoon five-spice powder
2 teaspoons soy sauce
finely grated zest or 1 lime or lemon
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper

Mix together 5 secs, Speed 6.

Cook on Veroma approx 25/30 minutes, Speed 2.  Till mixture has boiled and sugar is dissolved.
Pour into jars, seal and store in fridge.

Thanks Trudy, this is going to be perfect for cooking some pork or chicken in the air fryer.

i wonder if i used  dried apricots would be ok 
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: trudy on February 09, 2014, 11:11:10 pm
I would soak the apricots first to hydrate them and then give it a go.  Hope it works!!

this sounds great. I've got apricots in the freezer and think it would go nice with some pork meatballs I was planning on making. Hopefull I won't forget before I get around to doing it

Hope you like it.  If you have 1 kg Wonder then it's just as quick to double it and cook on the stove.

Made another two batches of this today plus one using plums instead of apricots.  Just love this sauce.

Thanks for bumping it Trudy. I somehow missed it before.

How funny, I mentioned twelve months ago that I was hoping I wouldn't forget about this, well almost twelve months to the day from my comment the thread has resurfaced and yesterday while doing an inventory of my freezer for me DH found the apricots I had planned to use!! Maybe I'll remeber this year ;D
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: judydawn on February 06, 2015, 12:02:29 am
 :D It happens to us all Wonder, join the club. So, you're going to use stewed apricots for this recipe or did you just freeze the apricots uncooked?  I wouldn't mind trying one of Trudy's recipe recipe suggestions and have a tub of stewed apricots in the freezer as a starting point.
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: Wonder on February 06, 2015, 03:18:46 am
Judy I have 1kg of apricots I got cheap last season which I stoned froze on a baking tray then put into vacuum sealer bags, sealed and froze. They still look perfect.  My problem with apricots is I love them for so many things I can never decide what to do with them  ;D
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: trudy on February 06, 2015, 04:23:33 am
Judy, a friend of mine made this on the stove last year using stewed apricots she had in the freezer.  She just cut down the sugar but was happy with it.
Wonder, don't worry we have all done this.  I'm on a mission at the moment to use up what I have in the freezer!!!!
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: judydawn on February 06, 2015, 05:20:51 am
Thanks Trudy, will give it a go then - probably after this current heat spell.

It is a problem Wonder, so little homegrown fresh fruit for so many recipes that we could use them in. I've printed out quite a lot of plum recipes.

Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: judydawn on February 09, 2015, 08:16:38 am
Well, I didn't wait for the heat spell to be over - I cooked some American T-bone steaks in the slow cooker today in a batch of this sauce and it was delicious.  Enough leftovers for another meal plus 2 containers of sauce in the freezer which I will probably pour over a cooked chicken fillet.  The frozen stewed apricots worked a treat Trudy, I just added all the spices etc, a bit more sugar and some water then cooked it in the TMX for 15 minutes. Thanks for this recipe.

Looks delicious Judy.  I think using it as a cooking sauce is a great idea.  :D

Good idea Judy to use up some apricots from the freezer, I've just pulled out two containers will turn them into sauce this afternoon.
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: trudy on February 10, 2015, 04:56:59 am
Glad you liked it Judy.  I always have jars of this in the fridge as it makes such a quick meal.  We love it especially with salmon.
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce

Yes I imagine it would be Trudy.

I made some of this today ready to have with chicken tomorrow night. DH described it as marmalade with chilli. I didn't tell him it was apricot.

He did thanks Trudy. I marinated chicken in it for several hours and then cooked it in the AF. I served it with rice and Vegies. We also had some extra sauce to pour over it. Very, very tasty.

I made this a couple of days ago and used some of it to cook some skinned drumsticks and cutlets in my SC.  After a few hours the meat  fell off the bones so after discarding all the bones and any gristle I put it in a container and refrigerated overnight.  I poured the cooking liquid through a sieve into a saucepan and put the pan in the fridge overnight.  Even with skinning the chicken there was about 1cm of solid fat on the surface the next day which I scooped off.

All I needed to do was boil the liquid down a bit then I poured over the shredded chicken and added a little bit more of the original glaze and mixed through for a boost of flavour. 
DH has been having mainly salads with his meals lately so yesterday I served with mash potatoes and steamed broccoli and carrots for a change.  He loved the flavour of the chicken.

I still have 2 lots of this lovely glaze/sauce in the freezer for other uses, thanks Trudy for your conversion.  :)

Julie, I put it hot into screw top jars and it keeps in the fridge for 12 months.  I also make it using blood plums which is also nice.
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: JulieO on February 21, 2015, 10:10:25 pm
Thanks for that Trudy, I may do that the next time after I've used this first lot up.   :D

Just making this with plums to have with baked chicken.
It smells delicious.

Trudy's, thanks for the recipe.  Will make some today with nectarines. Will let you know how it goes.

Post by: Bootobethin on February 23, 2015, 10:23:45 pm
Baked chicken with this glaze made with plums was delicious.
We had it with roast veggies and steamed greens.
This is a very versatile and handy glaze to have on hand for a quick and easy meal.
I think it would also be nice with fish.
Thanks for the recipe.

I am going to make some with the last of the plums today.  They are small and have stones that are hard to remove.  I will cook them in a little water and put through mouli and then add other ingredients to pulp. Let you know how this goes.

I made this today and it is yummy. I had some with pork sausages tonight. Thanks Trudy. My sauce was a bit thick, not runny, and I was wondering if that is the right consistency or should it be thinner. I did weigh the apricots without the stones. Also, can I store it in the pantry?

Kim, comment from Trudy
Julie, I put it hot into screw top jars and it keeps in the fridge for 12 months.  I also make it using blood plums which is also nice.

I've frozen small containers of the batch I made.

Thanks judy, was hoping to put in pantry and freeing up fridge space

Post by: troupie on December 30, 2015, 08:14:07 am
What a versatile recipe; copies for when I get some energy and do some more shopping. I imagine it would keep in the pantry the same as other condiments do. Thanks for the recipe.

Post by: JulieO on January 01, 2016, 11:46:40 pm
I have a double batch of this cooking at the moment as I too have loads of apricots that were given to me. 

It did boil over onto the lid and down the sides a bit, so reduced temp to 100C and am cooking for longer.  I may need to pour into a big saucepan and reduce down on the stove top a bit which I won't mind, but next time I will only make the one lot as stated in the recipe.  :)

Post by: EmeraldSue on January 18, 2016, 11:03:14 am
I made this with plums (plus 3 apricots as I was a little short on plums).
It was delicious in a stir fry, with chicken and veggies.

Post by: trudy on January 13, 2022, 07:38:20 am
Made a double batch of this wonderful glaze today.  Great with chicken/pork & salmon.
Think tomorrow will be making another double batch.  My only problem is that apricots are hard to find this year!
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: judydawn on January 13, 2022, 08:23:10 am
I just read all the posts Trudy and I just wish someone would give me some apricots, any Iíve bought in a supermarket have been terrible.
Title: Re: Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
Post by: trudy on January 13, 2022, 09:43:53 am
Judy, I know what you mean.  I ended up buying mine at Tony & Marks as they were just like you would pick yourself. $9.99 a kg but I thought if we drove to the Barossa looking for some it would cost more in petrol!

Post by: achookwoman on January 13, 2022, 08:29:06 pm
In Victoria all the stone fruit is very expensive this year. Combination of weather and few people to pick the fruit. However I must try this recipe.

Post by: cookie1 on January 14, 2022, 05:48:44 am
There was a market near the bread place this morning so I popped in. I wasn't overly impressed but I did pick up a kilo of bruised apricot for $9.99.  Compared to everywhere else this was cheap. I plan to make jam tomorrow if DH doesn't eat them all.
