Ingredients

  • 1 75cl bottle dry fruity rosé wine
  • 175g golden caster sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod , split open lengthways with a sharp knife, then cut in 4 (keep the seeds inside)
  • 700g ripe fresh apricots
  • vanilla ice cream, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Pour the wine into a saucepan, tip in the sugar and then add the pieces of vanilla pod. Stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved, then add the apricots. Cover and gently poach the apricots until just softened - about 15-20 minutes for whole fruit and 10-15 minutes for halves.

  • STEP 2

    Lift the apricots out and put them in a bowl. Boil the liquid hard for 8-10 minutes to make a thin syrup, then pour over the apricots and leave to cool. Serve warm or cold, with a good vanilla ice cream and a piece of vanilla pod to decorate.
