Greek apricots

Greek apricots

Sweet and saffron-scented, these apricots are gorgeous with low-fat Greek yoghurt. You can also use tinned apricots in winter.


Preparation method

  1. Put the water, sugar, cinnamon stick, saffron and honey into a pan and heat until the sugar has dissolved.

  2. Simmer gently for five minutes before adding the apricots. Simmer for a further five minutes. Remove from the heat and discard the cinnamon stick.

  3. Serve the apricots warm on a bed of yogurt, and drizzle over the syrup.
