Spiced Apricot Sauce
|Apricot preserves||10 Ounce|
|Lemon juice||1 Tablespoon|
|Lemon rind||1 Teaspoon|
|Arrowroot/1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold water||1 Teaspoon|
Melt the apricot preserves in a small heavy saucepan, adding the juice and rind of a lemon and the spices.
Strain the contents of the pan and return the clear liquid into a clean Saucepan.
Dissolve the arrowroot or cornstarch in the water and add to the sauce.
As the sauce comes to the boiling point, it will thicken.
This sauce can be used hot or cold.
Note: Arrowroot is used in preference to cornstarch to make a clearer more shiny sauce.
However, if you are not able to find any arrowroot, cornstarch is a good substitute.
