  • 85g light muscovado sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 400g dried fruits, any combination of prunes, apricots, peaches and pears
  • 4 tbsp cognac


  1. Tip the sugar into a measuring jug and pour over boiling water to the 400ml mark. Add the cinnamon stick, broken in two, and stir to dissolve the sugar.

  2. Put the fruits and cognac into a pan, pour over the syrup and bring to the boil. Simmer, partly covered, for 15 mins, then remove from the heat and leave to cool for a few minutes if serving warm, or chill if serving cold. Serve with some crème fraîche or ice cream.
