Edible Gift: Vanilla Mango Apricot

And so my season at work is coming to near end, I made a little parting gift to the awesome managers and supervisors who made sure they got my back and encouraged me in every step of the way that I did my job well. I was blessed with such very nice supervisors.

I got this recipe from Dec. 2011 issue of Food Network Magazine. It's called Vanilla Apricot (scroll down for recipe)

Just when I thought I got all the ingredients in hand...guess what? I didn't have lemon zest! But hey.. I got a mango and lemon juice. 
I did the recipe as said, but I added mango and a teeny tiny bit of shredded ginger and lemon juice.

Great topping for vanilla ice cream, or mix a little with balsamic vinegar for salad dressing or just plan spread for bread or cracker!

After cooling down, I divided them into small jars and packaged it! I got this awesome free printable tags in this link.

Vanilla Apricots

Bring 3 cups of sugar, 1/2 cups of water, 3 strips of lemon zest and I split of vanilla bean to a simmer, stirring. Add 3 cups of dried apricots; cook 10 minutes. Let cool, then divide among jars.

  5. Looks delicious! Do you know if you can substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean?

    1. I think you could but i never tried it. Don't be afraid to experiment ;) Real vanilla bean makes a difference though.

  6. This looks really good. I've made this one with pineapple before, and yum!
