Serve this Italian-style dessert with our Whole-Wheat Lemon Biscotti.
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.
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.
