Apricot Butter Recipe

(adapted from Nourishing Traditions Cookbook)

4 cups unsulphured dried apricots (where to find)
1 Tbl sea salt (I use Celtic for superior flavor)
1/4 cup liquid whey
1/4-1/2 raw, unfiltered honey (where to find)

Cook apricots in filtered water until soft.

Let cool for a bit and then process in food processor with the rest of the ingredients.

Place in a 1 quart glass mason jar and close lid tightly. Leave on the counter for 2 days and then refrigerate.  Use within 2 months.

Remember that there are many ways to enjoy fermented apricot butter. Our family enjoys it on on pancakes, waffles or in oatmeal. It is also delicious right off the spoon in the afternoon when a sugar craving hits. I’ve heard other people like to spread in on toast or bagels just like jam. Since it is loaded with probiotics and enzymes, it will help cooked foods that it are eaten along with to be digested more easily too.
