A super easy and delicious recipe for apricots poached in chamomile tea with vanilla.
2 cups of strongly brewed chamomile tea
3/4 of a cup of sugar
1 vanilla pod split and seeds removed
750 – 800g halved apricots with pips removed
Bring the tea, sugar and split vanilla pod to a boil and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes then add the fruit. Apricots (especially very ripe ones) poach very quickly, so you will need to cook them for a maximum of about 3 – 5 minutes. Remove the apricots with a slotted spoon and set aside. If you leave them in the boiling syrup they will turn to mush. Allow the syrup to cool and serve either warm or cold with ice cream.
