Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the bacon in a large saute pan over medium heat until almost crisp, about 4 minutes. Add the onions and saute until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until aromatic, about 1 minute.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients. Simmer until the apricots are very soft, about 10 minutes. Taste the sauce and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.
  3. Transfer the sauce to a blender and secure lid. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to high. Blend for 30 seconds, until relatively smooth.
  4. The glaze is ready to use, or it can be cooled and stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
