Baked Vanilla Apricots with Rosé

IMG_2274

What’s the difference between a recipe and a method? This isn’t a joke, nor a trick question, but what comes to mind when I think about these apricots.

There is so little to be said and done here that I am almost hesitant to share. But Molly did, so here is my take on her apricot recipe/method/whatever:

  • Gather apricots
  • Slice in half, remove stone
  • Dip cut side into sugar of your choice and lay with sugared side up in a baking dish
  • Split vanilla pod, scoop and scatter the seeds over the apricots (or use vanilla sugar, as I did)
  • Grab a wine glass, fill with wine (I used this – it was GOOD), pour into baking dish
  • Place dish in preheated oven (180 deg C) and bake for about 35 minutes (or as Molly so perfectly puts it, until the apricots feel “heavy, slack, almost jiggly, like a slightly tired water balloon’”. Excellent!
  • Serve your apricots (warm or cold) with yoghurt, ice cream, nothing at all, but please don’t forget to splash some of that wine syrup over them.

Right now

:: chuckling at these adorable apricots. Too cute!

:: reading The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. This novel tells the story of Hadley Hemingway, wife of Ernest, and their life together in Paris. I’ve only just started but am really enjoying it so far.

:: counting down the days until we depart. 11 days of work for Shake, 19 until we go!

:: drinking lots of hot water with honey and lemon. This has been a poorly mummy week, so glad to be getting better.

:: thinking about my friends having babies. I can’t wait for our little man to have lovely friends to play with. It’s also a great way to distribute his newborn clothes!

:: wishing baby would stop growing, that time would stand still a little while and for my mind to focus on the priceless moments I have with my boy.

:: writing letters to my boy so that I remember this time. I have a terrible memory and there are some things I really don’t want to forget. Birth story?

:: researching lots of fun trips and activities to entertain our guests in France, we have visitors for the first 3 weeks already and more coming in August :)
