Place the apricots in water to soak for 10 minutes in warm water, while you prepare the rest of the stuffing ingredients.

Boil a pan of water and place the peeled, whole onions in. Simmer for 8 minutes, then drain.

Take two of the onions and chop finely in either a food processor, or by pulsing a hand-held stick blender or blender and place in a large bowl. Finely chop the remaining onion and add to the bowl.

Finely slice up the apricots and add to the bowl of onions along with the remaining ingredients.

Mix everything together well and place in a lightly greased 8 by 8-inch baking pan or loaf tin, spreading evenly. You could also roll the stuffing into walnut sized balls and place in the baking pan.
