  • 12 ounces dried apricots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or more to taste, depending on the sweetness of the fruit
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon, optional


Place apricots in a saucepan. Add sugar, lemon juice, and just enough water to barely cover the fruit. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook down the dried fruit until reduced and thick, 15 to 20 minutes. Add cinnamon, if using. Transfer the cooked fruit to a food processor and pulse 3 to 4 times until desired consistency is reached.
