Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tbsp, il Fustino Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 1/2, shallot
  • 1/2 tsp, kosher salt
  • 1 tsp, whole mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp, Aleppo chili flakes
  • 1/4 cup, sugar
  • 1/4 cup, il Fustino Chardonnay Vinegar
  • 1 tsp, Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups, dried apricots – chopped into small pieces

Directions

Finely dice half of a small shallot.

In a small saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced shallot and salt. Cook until shallot softens, about 3 minutes.

Add the mustard seeds, Aleppo chili flakes and dijon mustard. Cook for an additional minute.

Pour in the vinegar and sugar and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and let cook for 3 minutes so the sugar can dissolve completely. Make sure to stir often so the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

Add the chopped apricots and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 10-12 minutes, until liquid is thick and apricot pieces are nice and plump (Think of the consistency of jam).

Let cool and enjoy!
