  • 1 1/2 cups apricot nectar
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 2 to 3 tbsps. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. flour

TONGUE: Fill 4-quart pot three-quarters full of water. Add tongue. When water boils and darkens, change water and continue cooking in fresh water. If tongue is pickled, repeat the process, changing the water a second time. This time, bring to a boil on a high flame and then lower flame to cook over medium flame for 2 to 3 hours until tender. After tongue has cooked, and while it is still warm, hold with fork and peel off skin. When cooled, cut into 1/4-inch slices.

APRICOT SAUCE: Approximately 30 minutes before serving, mix sauce ingredients in a 10-inch skillet and bring to a boil. Add in as many of slices of tongue as will be served. Shut of flame and allow tongue to warm in the sauce for several minutes.
