After making and tasting mom's hotdog onions, I knew they'd go with the asparagus tips I was also cooking that day. I'd used a Turkish pepper sauce which gave it a mellow spiciness, and thought of how well sweet goes with spice. I wound up chopping several dried apricots into the mix and was very pleased with the result!
