sorry, I'm being very slow here and I'm not much of a cook! Where the recipe says 'Pour over the packet of French onion soup mix and pour the apricots over the top' -- does that mean make the soup up first (and is that to a pint)? and does it mean dry or tinned apricots? - I'm basically not sure how much liquid I should have and it's for a celebration meal so I want it to be OK. Thank uloads

thanks I brought packet apricots - how much liquid would u add to them pls and would chicken stock be OK ? Or would it be better for me to buy tinned apricots and use the nectar? I want to try & get it right for a family celebration but I'm not a great cook!

I put the powdered mix into the apricot nectar from the tin of apricots. Mix it up, tip it in, and rinse the container in warm water which I also tip into the meal.
