 Ingredients List

  • 6 md Apricots; *Note
  • 2 ts Lime Juice; **Note
  • 2 ts Sugar; To 2 T
  • 1 c Blueberries; ***Note
  • 16 oz Canned Peaches; ****Note
  • 2 ts Slivered Almonds; *****Note


*NOTE: I didn't have any fresh apricots so I used canned in their own
juice, drained

**NOTE: or the juice from 1 lime

***NOTE: I didn't have fresh blueberries so I used frozen, and I thawed

****NOTE: I added canned peaches in their own juice, drained - - Peaches
were not in the original recipe

*****NOTE: Original recipe did not include the slivered almonds...I just
added them in for texture

If you are using fresh apricots cut them in half through the stem end and
pit them. Put the halves in the steaming basket cut sides down, cover,
and steam until just tender, 12 - 15 minutes. Use a spatula or large spoon
to transfer to apricots to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled, about 2
hrs. (I just put the canned ones in a bowl after I drained their juice.)

Add the lime juice, sugar and blueberries (I added the peaches also) to the
apricots, toss gently, and taste for sugar; add more if needed. Cover and
let macerate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Serve chilled. (Just before
serving I sprinkled the slivered almonds on top.)

It was very good considering I didn't use anything that was fresh (all out
of season/not in my house right now) and didn't steam anything...just mixed
it all together and chilled it.
