Apricot Pineapple Marmalade

An old client gave me this great recipe and I have been making it for years. Passing the apricot halves through the large holes of a meat grinder makes quick work of the preparation for this absolutely delicious staple in our home. I make two batches every year, one cooked for 1 minute for a runnier marmalade for spooning over yogurt and mixing with Thai sweet chili sauce as a ham baste and the second batch cooks for 5 minutes for a thick marmalade for toast. It is a beautiful sunny orange colour that is most welcome during Vancouver's rainy fall and winter seasons.
