SPICED APRICOTS WITH CARAMEL COCONUT CREAM

Serves 4

100g brown sugar

1/2 cup water

1 whole star anise

1 cinnamon stick

2 whole cloves

2 cardamom pods, bruised

6 large ripe apricots, halved and seeded

270ml light coconut cream

35g toasted chopped pistachio nuts

Stir brown sugar and water in a medium frying pan over low heat, without boiling, until sugar is dissolved. Add star anise, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom and simmer for two to three minutes.

Add half the apricots, cut side down, and simmer for two minutes, then turn and cook until soft. Remove and cook remaining apricots. Remove fruit and add coconut cream, stir over low heat until smooth.
