Apricots in wine with baked custard and almonds (Postre de damascos al vino con miel y almendras)









When I saw these photos and  was making this post I could not believe that the summer (here)happened so fast.

 We are already in Autumn and near the winter. We had nice apricots but everything was so quickly .
But I always thought of doing this post at the time when the north are already in the season of apricots.
I hope you enjoy this recipe.
I will wait to my next summer to enjoy apricots.

Ingredients

custard

400 ml milk 
350 ml double cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 egg yolks
70 grams sugar

Poached apricots

500 ml moscato or white wine
2 tablespoons honey
6 or 8 ripe apricots, halved and stoned


 almonds

60 grams almonds sliced lengthways in half
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Method

Preheat the oven 160° (325 F)
To make the custard pour the milk and cream into a pan and add the vanilla.
Simmer gently for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat. Beat together the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl.
Very slowly pour the warmed milk and cream into the eggs, whisking constantly. Return the mix to the pan and place over a low heat,stirring constantly with a wooden spoon for 5 minutes, until thickened.

Pour this mix into a 1 litre overproof dish that is at least 5 cm deep. Fold an old tea towell in half and place one of the bottom of a large roasting tin that will easily fit your overproof dish. Sit the custard dish on top of the tea towell  and pour the water from a boiling kettle around the sides  of the dish to make a bain marie- you want the water to come halfway up the sides. 
Very carefully take to the ovan and bake  for 40 minutes or until set into the middle- you want a little custard to cling to it.
Remove the dish from  the bain marie and let cool.







Combine the wine and honet in a saucepan and place over a lowheat until honey dissolves. Add the apricots and make sure they are fully submerged. Simmer for about 4 mintes until they are just tender.

Transfer the apricots to a dish,then return the liquid to a medium heat and boil until reduced by half.

To make the almonds melt the butter in a small frying pan over a medium heat. When it just begin to bubble,add the almonds and sti, moving them constantly for 5 minutes until they begin to turn golden. Take oof the heat and toss with the sugar and salt. Leave to cool for 5 minutes. Serve the apricots with a spoonful of custard and a sprinkling of almonds.

  1. Gloria, We love apricots although most of the ones we eat are naturally dried. We don't see fresh apricots in the marketplace very often. Your dessert is beautiful... I'll take 2 servings please! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  14. Hi Gloria, reading your post, I am reminded we are on opposite seasons. I crave fall. I am not a fan of hot weather (smile) even though I have lived a lifetime in Florida.

    Your autumn dessert with apricots is beautiful. A perfect cool weather dessert.

    Happy autumn!

  29. I drove through the Central Valley in California yesterday and bought a crate (30 pounds) of apricots. I make jam with them. I love your recipe and hope to make it with some of my apricots. My all time favorite with apricots is Marillen Knödel ( Austrian apricot dumplings).
