Apricot Chilli Glaze/Sauce
« 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 would soak the apricots first to hydrate them and then give it a go.  Hope it works!!

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

 :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.
