1 1/2 cups dried apricots*
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
Place apricots in saucepan with enough water to cover and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until fruit is soft (about 20 minutes). Drain and reserve 3/4 cup of fruit liquid; cool.
Puree fruit in a food processor or blender with reserved fruit liquid. Add lemon juice and sugar to fruit and puree an additional 30 seconds.
Pour into an 8-inch square pan, place in freezer and stir every 15 minutes until creamy. Cover and freeze until semi hard.
*Just about any pureed fruit may be used to make this refreshing dessert, strawberries, pears, honeydew melon, pineapple, mango and papaya, to name a few. If fresh fruit are used, the proportion is 2 cups of pureed fruit to 1/2 cup of water.
