Apricot Sauce

Fresh apricots work best, but canned or dried are suitable too. If using dried, reconstitute them by soaking them over-night in water. Delicious when served with Piñon Hotcakes, the sauce keeps 1 week covered in the refrigerator. Recipe used with permission from Lois Frank’s Foods of the Southwest Indian Nations.
