REVIEW: recipe rating
The flavor was good but I had to cook it a long time on high with the lid off for it to thicken up. It took more like 4 more hours.

COMMENT:
This is an easy recipe, however, preserves are runny. Instructions should include, cut up apricots before cooking, and extend reduction time, I had initially cut back on water, but still runny,because I did not simmer long enough. Ck thickness before canning!
