Moroccan Apricots
« on: July 05, 2010, 09:11:35 pm »
(I went shopping today and the supermarket is full of wonderful summer fruits.It reminded me to look out this recipe and share it with you.Another recipe from a Themomix cookery class)
Moroccan Apricots
125g sugar.
2 tbsp lemon juice
115g blanched almonds
orange flower water
25g butter
almond essence
900g fresh apricots
fresh mint for decoration
1. Put the sugar in the TM bowl and grind 5 seconds/speed10.Tip into a bowl.Tip back in 75g of ground the sugar in the TM.
2. Add the lemon juice and 300g water and cook 5minutes/100c/speed1 to make a syrup.Pour into a jug and wash the TM bowl
3.Put the almonds into the TM bowl and grind speed 10 until finely ground.
4.Add the reserved sugar and the butter..Melt the butter 5minutes/50c/speed1.
5. Add orange flower water and the almond essence and mix on speed5 until a smooth paste.
6.Wash the apricots, make a small slit in the flesh and ease out the stones.
7.Make small balls of paste and press one into each apricot.
8. Arrange in a shallow dish and carefully pour around the syrup.
9.Cover with foil and bake 180c for 25-30 minutes.
10.Serve with a little syrup and decorate with mint.
I made these to take to a lunch and they were delicious.I served them with Greek yogurt.I would have thought it would work with either peaches or nectarines that are halved and stuffed with the mixture.

Don't cry over the past,it's gone.Don't stress about the future,it hasn't arrived.Live in the present and make it beautiful.

Yum - can't wait until summer - apricots and almonds are always a good combo
