Poached Apriums with Cream

Poached Apriums with Cream
  • Prep 10 min
  • Total 25 min
  • Ingredients 6
  • Servings 3

In the summer, the last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time cooking near the stove. For this reason, I like to create spring and summer dishes that require little to no cooking time. I also try to include fresh, seasonal ingredients, like fruits in season; I love a fresh fruit salad as a summer dessert! Another way to incorporate fruits into easy desserts is by quickly poaching them and covering them with a generous dollop of cold whipped cream. And tha'’s exactly what I've done here, using one of my favorite summer fruits: apriums (a plum and apricot hybrid)! MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Cut the apriums in half and remove the seeds. Place them on a medium pan facing up, side by side.
  • 2
    Mix 1 tablespoon honey with the juice of the orange in a cup, until the honey is completely dissolved.
  • 3
    Cover the apriums with the honey-orange mix. Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 15-20 minutes.
  • 4
    While the apriums are cooking, whip the cream and the rest of the honey in a deep bowl with a hand mixer at high speed. Stop when the cream is thick enough, but don't overdo it because you'll turn it into butter!
  • 5
    Serve the apriums with a bit of the cooking liquid, and cover them with a dollop of whipped cream and some walnuts and sunflower seeds. Serve and enjoy!
  • To make the whipped cream, you have to make sure the cream is very cold. Keep it refrigerated for several hours before using, or put it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • You can make the whipped cream beforehand, and keep it covered in the fridge until you want to use it.
