Homemade Apricot Nectar
Easy recipe for sweet, juicy and quenching homemade apricot nectar. Made with only 5 ingredients, can be canned and stored for up to 6 months!
jar (750 ml)
halved and pits removed
Place apricots and water in a large saucepan, bring to simmer and reduce heat to medium.
Let simmer for about 30 minutes or until apricots are really soft and completely broken down.
Run the mixture through the sieve, pushing the apricots through with the spoon, collecting the puree and liquid in a large bowl.
Keep pushing it through the sieve until puree stops dripping from the sieve as you stir (you don't want to push too much apricot puree as it will cause nectar to look brownish).
Add agave syrup, sugar and lemon juice and whisk for a couple of minutes.
If preserving nectar, pour it into canning jar, and place in a large pan of boiling water, ensuring the whole jar is covered in water and boil for 20 minutes.
Remove jar from boiling water, let cool, and store for up to 6 months in a dry, cool place.
