Apricot and Ginger Muffins

Thought I would try and make these today - have a couple of people to visit so will make a double batch and take a few on my travels.
Recipe is from the ABC radio (Australia) backyard recipe finder. One of my fave sites for finding quick and easy recipes. Will update tonight and let you know if this one is a keeper! Will use up some of my home preserved apricots instead of the tinned ones.
Here it is

Can't wait to hear how they turned out, they sound yummy.
I think I would probably chop the apricots up though :)

I agree Michelle, I too would chop them up next time - might even try it with some stewed apricots instead and maybe increase the ginger a little it was very subtle! Thanks for your input :)
