An Apricot Lover's Dream

Last year I learned to make Apricot Syrup. See this post for details. This year I'm sharing the recipe (originally from my friend, Margie).

4 cups of pureed apricots
add 1 cup water
mix together in pan
add 3 TB lemon juice and 4 cups sugar
bring to a boil stirring constantly. Boil 5 min. continuing to stir.
Put in jars. Put jars in canner with hot water. Water should be 1 inch above jars. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 10 minutes. Remove jars, let seal and cool.

5 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups finely crushed cornflakes
1 cup old-fashioned oats
2 TB sugar
1 TB baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients: Mix well. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months. Yield: 5 batches.

To prepare pancakes , combine 1 1/2 cups mix, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 egg and 1 TB oil, whisk just until moistened.

Yield--10 pancakes
