2, 17 oz. cans apricot halves
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
1/2 cup orange juice 1/4 teaspoon. ground cardamom*
1 8 oz carton plain yogurt
thin orange slices
Drain apricots, reserving the syrup. In blender or food processor combine the reserved syrup and half the apricots. Add orange peel, juice and cardamom*. Cover and blend until the liquid is smooth. Add the yogurt and blend until just combined. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Cut up the remaining apricots and stir them into the blended ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Stir before serving and garnish with thin orange slices if desired.
* Cardamom is VERY expensive. I use it but if you don’t think you’ll use it for anything else, don’t buy it just substitute nutmeg.
