“Everyone loves maple syrup; just don’t skimp and buy the artificial version. Mild roasting brings added crunch and deeper flavour to the almonds.”
- 40 gm natural almonds
- 40 gm butter, coarsely chopped
- 12 apricots, halved, stone removed
- 100 ml maple syrup
- 120 gm firm ricotta
- To serve: demerara sugar
- 1Preheat oven to 150C. Scatter almonds on an oven tray and roast until golden (5-7 minutes). Cool, coarsely chop and set aside.
- 2Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium heat, add apricot halves in batches and turn occasionally until just tender and slightly golden (3-5 minutes). Remove from heat, pour over maple syrup and serve scattered with ricotta, sugar and almonds.
