Delicious softened apricots with subtle complimenting flavours that make a good dessert for Diabetic, Gluten Free, Low Calorie, Low Fat, Nut Free, Paleo, Vegan and Vegetarian.



Preparation: 5 mins | Cooking: 10 mins | Serves: 4

8 apricots

1 tsp honey*

1 tbsp white wine

1 orange, rind

2 sprigs rosemary, small**

PREHEAT oven 200 C/400 F/Gas 6.

HALVE the apricots and remove the stone.

LINE a small baking tin with parchment paper. (The piece should be large enough to pull the sides together, wrapping the apricots in a sealed packet to bake.)

LAY the apricots, cut side up on the parchment.

DRIZZLE over the honey and wine and add the orange rind and rosemary.

CLOSE the parchment around the apricots so it is airtight.

BAKE for 10 minutes.

REMOVE from the oven.

COOL the apricots (with the parchment closed if you want the fruit to continue softening).
