Ginger & Apricot Slice


My amazing Mum made this delicious slice recently, and I just had to share the recipe!!  It's from Annabel Langbein's book, "Free Range in the City".  She has a tonne of delicious recipes here as well.

There's something about the combination of ginger, pistachios and apricots that is waaaaay too good!!  Add to that the fact that this is a no bake slice, and one that you can change the ingredients around to suit what you have in your pantry, and your away laughing!

Ginger and Apricot Slice

3/4 cup (185ml) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup (150g) dried apricots, finely chopped
1/2 cup (100g) crystallised ginger, finely chopped, plus extra for topping
1 cup (90g) desiccated coconut
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tblsp lemon juice
375 plain biscuits, crushed to fine crumbs
2 tblsp pistachios, shelled and chopped
