Poached Dried Apricots and Currants with Zabaglione

  • servings: 10

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 navel oranges, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped, pod reserved for another use
  • 2 green cardamom pods, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 40 dried apricots (1 1/2 cups)

  • Zabaglione

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring water, wine, sugar, honey, oranges, vanilla seeds, and spices to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves, about 8 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Add apricots and currants. Cover, and cook until apricots have softened, about 30 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve, reserving liquid and transferring fruit to a bowl. Simmer liquid until reduced to 1 cup, about 6 minutes. Strain syrup through fine sieve. Pour syrup over fruit. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Serve with zabaglione.
