Apricot Recipes

Belonging to the “Prunus” family of fruit trees, apricots have long been described as peaches with attitude! Their noticeable tartness makes them particularly great for baking and if it’s complexity you’re looking to add, then cooked apricots will deliver! The true taste of an apricot, however, is for you and your tastebuds to decide. Now, the question you must ask yourself, “Apricots, apricots, in a dish! How many pieces do you wish?” Enjoy!


Bacon Wrapped Apricots


  • 2 medium apricots
  • 3-4 slices uncured bacon (up to 150 calories worth, per your MRC menu)
  • Toothpicks


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Wash and remove the pit from 2 apricots
  3. Slice each apricot in half (you’ll have 4 pieces total)
  4. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each apricot half, and insert a toothpick to hold the bacon in place.
  5. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, until bacon is crisp.

Apricot Jalapeño Jam


  • 6 medium apricots
  • 1-2 jalapeños
  • 4 packets of zero calorie sweetener
  • 1/4 C lemon juice


  1. Wash the apricots thoroughly. Note: because the skins will be used, this step is important.
  2. Remove the stone (pit) and slice apricots in half
  3. Leave the skins on (the pectin from the skin will help the jam firm)
  4. Prep the jalapeños by removing stems and seeds (Tip: removing seeds will reduce the spice)
  5. Place apricots and jalapeños in saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally
  6. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the apricots are mushy.
  7. Reduce heat to med-low, and add lemon juice and sweetener.
  8. Continue to simmer for another 40 minutes or until the texture thickens to your desired consistency. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Mash up any chunks with a fork.
  9. Pour into sterilized jar with a tight fitting lid. Let cool completely.
  10. Place in fridge. Good for up to 1 week.
  11. On your MRC Menu 1/3 of the jar is a fruit serving. Enjoy on toast or as a topping for chicken or pork loin.
