As with all traditionally fermented foods, this recipe is loaded with probiotics and enzymes. As such, it greatly assists digestion.
In our home, we use apricot butter as a spread on pancakes, in soaked oatmeal, or even just by itself on a big spoon as a sweet, afternoon pick-me-up!
My husband likes it loosely mixed with raw butter and some crushed nuts for a quick, enzyme rich breakfast.

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.
