Okay - I have a situation. I started working on the filling and frosting yesterday, since she wanted the cake today... THEN I got a call and there was an emergency with the gal and she won't need the cake until NEXT Sunday. The frosting I made will keep fine, I'm just concerned with the filling. I've never made a filling like this. It's no problem making some more next week, but this filling is just SO TASTY that I hate to see it go to waste. Do you think it will stay in the fridge, sealed, for a week?
Here's the recipe:1 1/4 cups fresh orange juice, divided
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
3/4 cup dried whole apricots (about 3 ounces)
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons salted sweet cream butter
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Combine 3/4 cup orange juice and apricots in a non aluminum saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until apricots are tender. Spoon into a blender or food processor, and process until smooth.
Combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup orange juice & 1/4 cup Grand Marnier, stirring with a wire whisk until well-blended. Add the margarine; bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook 1 minute or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add apricot mixture and lemon juice. Pour into a bowl; cover and chill 4 hours.
MAN! I don't even like apricots OR flavored liquor but this filling rocked
. I just hate wasting it.
Any ideas on what I should do?
