Vanilla Bean Poached Apricots

A reduction of the poaching syrup gently sweetens & they may be served with the skin still on the fruit or it may be removed. Look to The Basics: Apricots for pointers on how to peel them easily. Learn how to make a beautiful summer dessert that may be prepared at a moments notice.
