Last week, while I was in Boston, I had dinner with my college friend Gabe in Cambridge at a cute Harvard Square gastropub called, in true Boston spirit, Tory Row. We washed a number of tasty small plates down with delicious microbrewed ales, my favorite of which was a strikingly simple, yet impossible-to-stop-eating curried apricot cheese spread. I vowed to recreate it upon returning home and found, upon puttering around in my kitchen, that it is actually quite easy to make.
Note: If you opt to use fresh apricots, use only about 3 instead of 8 dried ones, and eat the spread immediately.
