I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Green Beans with Apricots and Serrano Ham" from amanda. It says:
"Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, place the apricots in a bowl and pour over the sherry and ½ cup boiling water (yes, you can take it from the pot of boiling water!). Let the apricots sit and plump while you prepare the rest of the ingredients."
Should I still add the boiling water if the apricots are fresh? Or just the sherry?
