“An amazingly simple but delicious summer fruits dessert. It also freezes well so you can enjoy the taste of summer all year round. Serve with vanilla ice cream or sour cream. Also works well with plums.”

6 cups water would make this apricot juice. I used only 1 1/2 cups water with a little orange juice added. I added 1 teaspoon vanilla near the end of the cooking process, not the beginning.

I thought the amount of water could be greatly reduced. I put in 4 cups and it was still too much water. I guess it depends on the size of your apricots. I also used half honey and half sugar.

SIX cups of water??? NO WAY!! And what's up with the notion of "two drops" of vanilla?? I guessed using 2 cups of water, but even that was too much.
