Apricot Fruit Mixture

Ingredients
Apricots
Sugar - need .5 gm of sugar for every 1 gm of apricots
Fresh squeezed lemon juice, 1 lemon

Helpful Tools
Large pot with heavy bottom

Directions
Rinse fruit, drain, cut apricots in half, and discard pits. Weigh apricots and place into large pot. Calculate how much sugar is needed - .5 gm of sugar for every 1 gm of apricots.  Pour sugar over apricots. Add juice of one squeezed lemon. Turn heat to medium high and stir to prevent sticking. Cook until thickened and apricots just start to breakdown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Pour into prepared rustic tart shell and fold edges up and onto fruit. Bake 375ºF (190ºC) until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
