you do remember to join the BBD #11, don't youuuuu???
it is the one year anniversary!!
here you find the original reciepe in german:
here you find the italian version:
here you find the swedish version:
500 g Apricots
100 g tosted cocco flakes *
300 g white sugar
put all ingredients in a big pot.
leave it marinate for some hours, 2 hours is enough.
then give it a stir , and then keep mixing with a wooden spoon, let cook for ca 6min.
if you want a perfectely smooth marmelade, now you take the pot of the heat and mix it with a immersion blender, you make it all smoooth.**
let stir up again an cook until the marmelade has reached the right density.
pour in perfectly clean jars, turn on the cover and put the jars to cool upside down.
leave them upside down until they are perfectly cooled.
store in a cool and dark place.
perserving time: 6-8 months (due to the fresh cocco flakes)
if you use fresh cocco, grate it and toast it in a hot pan
I didn't blender the marmelade, because I like it with pieces.
