This dish is one of my favorites to make in late summer, when apricots are at their peak of ripeness. Nectarines and peaches also make great substitutes. Whatever you choose, go for the ripest, most fragrant fruit you can find. I’ll often toss in some raisins or apples for texture if I have them on hand, but the sweet-nutty flavor combination is perfect on its own. Dried apricots also work well outside the Summer months.
1 pound apricots, halved and pitted
⅓ cup pine nuts
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 cup water
Juice from 1 lime
Basil to garnish (optional)
In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat and sauté pine nuts until lightly toasted, no more than 2 minutes. Set aside.
In a saucepan, combine apricots, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, almond extract and water. Simmer over medium heat until sauce is thick and syrupy, up to 15 minutes. Stir in pine nuts and serve warm over yogurt or ice cream. Garnish with a pinch of chopped basil.
