Ingredients

  • 12 ripe apricots
  • 375ml sweet white wine such as monbazillac or muscat
  • 40g shelled (unsalted) pistachios
  • 65g biscotti or cantuccini biscuits, broken into large chunks
  • 150ml double cream, chilled

Method

  1. Quarter the apricots and discard the stones. Put the apricot quarters into a bowl and pour over the wine. Cover with cling film and chill for at least 24 hours (see Make Ahead). The next day, divide the apricots among 4 clean sealable jars. Divide half the wine evenly among the jars (strain and keep the rest to pour over fruit sorbets). Seal and chill.
  2. Lightly bash the pistachios in a pestle and mortar or roughly chop, then put with the broken biscotti in a sealable tub. Put the cream in a sealable bottle and keep chilled with the apricots in a cool box. To serve, drizzle cream over the apricots and top with the biscotti and pistachios.

delicious. tips

  1. Use any ripe fruit you like here – plums and figs would also work well.

  2. You can leave the apricots to macerate in the wine for up to 48 hours in the fridge.
