Dried Apricot Sauce


100 g / 4 oz dried apricots
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup wine (muscat or muscatel)

Wash dried apricots in warm water, put in a pan, pour over with a cup of water, and cook until soft. Rub boiled dried apricots through a sieve, put it back into a pan, add sugar and 1/4 cup hot water, mix, bring to boil and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add wine and mix. Apricot sauce may also be prepared similarly, replacing dried apricots with apricot puree (200 g / 7 oz).
