Bereiding

Combine the apricots, thyme, vodka, and the brandy in a large jar with a tight-fitting cover. Place in a cool, dark place to steep for 1 month.



Crush the apricots slightly with a wooden spoon or potato masher and steep for another 4 days.



Strain the liquid, pressing as much juice as possible from the apricots, then filter.



Boil the sugar and water together in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved; cool, then gradually stir into the liqueur, tasting as you go.



When the liqueur has reached the desired level of sweetness, bottle and age for an additional 3 weeks in a cool dark place. (Makes about 1 quarts)...



Note: Amounts will vary according to the ripeness of the fruits and the quantity of ingredients used.
