Once all slices are browned, place back into mixture in glass baking dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

French Toast 2016

Honey Apricot Jam

Makes about two cups

1 1/4 pounds apricots, pitted and quartered
1/2 cup filtered water
1/4 cup wildflower honey
1 teaspoon fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Combine the water and honey in a medium saucepot and bring to a simmer to make syrup. Add the apricots and lemon juice and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking or scorching (turn down the heat if necessary). The jam is ready when it starts to mound up and your spoon leaves a clear track across the bottom of the pot. As mentioned, ours took about 20 minutes. It’s a tiny batch, so just jar it and store it in the fridge. Without sugar, it probably won’t last for more than a couple of weeks, but we don’t know for sure because it was eaten up within a few days.
