Apricot Sauce Recipe
A multi-purpose dessert sauce – good with dishes as far apart as Ice Cream to Apple Charlotte.
The quality of the jam used makes all the difference – Tiptree’s is hard to beat. Jam with a low fruit content will give you disappointing results.
The sauce will keep well in the fridge, if you any leftover – we doubt it!
