TIP OF THE DAY: Easy Apricot Glaze

An easy way to add more flavor to roasted meat is with a simple glaze. This recipe adds a sweet and spicy touch to chicken, duck, ham, pork loin or turkey.

If you don’t like heat, cut back on the chili flakes.

Use any extra glaze as a sauce (dilute it with chicken stock if desired), and the extra sprigs of thyme as a plate garnish. You can also freeze the thyme sprigs as an ingredient or garnish for another day.

RECIPE: EASY APRICOT GLAZE

Ingredients

  • 1 jar apricot preserves or apricot jam
  • 1 tablespoon chili flakes
  • ¼ cup of bourbon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper
  • 1 spring of fresh thyme
  •

    Preparation

    1. ADD all ingredients to a sauce pan. Bring to boil over high heat then maintain simmer over lower flame. Stir with a wooden spoon to loosen the apricot preserves.

    2. REDUCE until syrupy for about 5-8 minutes.

    3. BASTE meat with mixture roughly every 3-4 minutes during the last 15 minutes of cooking. You can also add a few tablespoons of this mixture to a gravy or other sauce for greater depth of flavor.
