🍑 Honey-Roasted Apricots🍑

Inspired by a recent trip to Queenstown, and picking up some of our Central Otago stone fruits, who can resist these; sweet, seductive, Honey Roasted Apricots, the perfect Valentines Day desert for all those aspiring Gordon Ramsays!


  • 8-10 ripe apricots* sliced in half, stones removed

  • A good drizzle of honey, about 1/4 cup

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamom

  • Zest and juice of a lemon

  • 1 cup double cream

  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup silvered almonds, lightly toasted

* Most types of stonefruit would be lovely here, such as nectarines and peaches.


1. Set the oven to 180C.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the apricots, honey, cinnamon, lemon zest and juice, gently toss to combine.

3. Transfer to a baking dish, and roast in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until tender and caramelised.

4. Pour the cream into a bowl, along with the vanilla, and beat until gently whipped.

5. Serve the apricots warm, along with the whipped cream, and a sprinkling of toasted silvered almonds.
