Homemade Apricot Brandy (Vargas and Gulling) Recipe

Miscellaneous Untried Recipes

This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.

From Cordials From Your Kitchen by Pattie Vargas and Rich Gulling:

Boil sugar and water together, let stand until cool. Cut apricots in half, remove pits, and thinly slice. Combine all ingredients into 2-quart jar and seal. Let steep for 1 month. Do not refrigerate.

Strain and filter into another container, and let stand for 1 day. Rack off the sediments, and let age for 1 to 3 months.

Varittion: Make Dried Apricot Brandy by substituting 1 pound dried apricots for fresh, and adding 1/2 cup of water when combining ingredients.

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
1 cup = 8 ounces = 236ml
1 quart = 32 ounces = 944ml
1 tbsp (tablespoon) = 1/2 ounce = 15ml
1 fifth = 25.6 ounces = 750ml
1 tsp (teaspoon) = 1/6 ounce = 5ml
1 pint = 16 ounces = 472ml
