Apricot-Orange Fruit Smear

Apricot-Orange Fruit Smear
Too much extra ripe fruit means jam-making time!  I like this "smear" because I don't really have the patience to make legit jam, and this recipe has way less sugar!

2 ripe apricots, chopped
2 small oranges, peeled and chopped
1 tsp. grated ginger
1 T. honey
1 tsp. cornstarch

In a saucepan, mix together the chopped apricot and oranges, ginger and honey.  Bring the mixture to a boil.  Mix in the cornstarch, and continue to boil until it thickens up a little.  Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.  Blend the mixture in a food processor until smooth.  Transfer to an air-tight container and refrigerate.  Smear it on toast, spoon it on top of your oatmeal, blend it up with ice and green tea (delicious)....or just eat it with a spoon!
Also, Happy August!

5 things to do this month:
1) Practice yoga once a day.
2) Get this blog rolling!
3) Prepare my closet for coming invasion of super cute fall clothing (Anthropologie is about to obliterate my bank account)
4) Camping, hiking and biking!
5) And of course I'll be a counselor at EFY (Especially For Youth - a camp that is sponsored by my church) for all of next week! (alright...alright....alright alright alright hey!)

Make August great!
