Brandied Apricots Recipe

Drain two cans of whole apricots and reserve 2 cups of the syrup. Combine the syrup in a medium-sized saucepan with 3/4 cup of brandy, 2 broken cinnamon sticks, and 6 whole cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Then pour the hot syrup over the drained apricots in a bowl. Cover and chill about 3 or 4 hours or until serving time.
