Poached summer fruit is so simple and so quick; you just can’t beat it. Any stone fruit is good in this recipe, just take care not to overcook them.
Ingredients220g (1 cup) caster sugar
500ml (2 cups) water
1 vanilla pod
4 cardamom pods (spilt open)
2 cinnamon sticks
Pure cream for serving
PreparationPlace sugar and water in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium heat.
Dissolve sugar in water. Once dissolved add vanilla, cardamom and cinnamon sticks and bring to a gentle boil.
Allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Prepare apricots by cutting in half and discarding the stone. Place fruit into poaching syrup and cook until just softened, about 5 minutes.
