apricot marinade spread

This flavour boosting all-purpose apricot marinade is not only good for tenderizing meat and poultry…but also great with tofu. While this is a great base marinade, it can be altered to whatever spices you have on hand or what you are cooking. Apricot marinade is so versatile, you can switch it up to whatever cuisine you’re interested in.

If tex-mex is what you are after, add in some Mexican spices like cumin, chili powder and lime zest.

If you want more of a Moroccan feel, add in turmeric, smoked paprika, coriander and ginger.
