Apricot Compote with Scotch Whisky and Ice Cream
Viviane Bauquet Farre

Once I have my fill of eating apricots on their own, I like to make a quick compote with them. Served with ice cream, it becomes an elegant dessert for a dinner party. But it’s also incredibly delicious with yogurt, with a slice of pound cake, or even for breakfast on top of pancakes.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 pounds ripe apricots, pitted and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar, preferably organic
  • 1/3 cup blended Scotch whisky or cognac
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • Lemon balm or mint leaves, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

Place the apricot slices in a medium-sized, heavy-bottomed pan. Add the lemon juice and sugar and heat over medium-high heat. Stir well and simmer vigorously for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. The apricots will release their juices and the sauce will become foamy. Remove from the heat, add the whiskey, and stir well. Transfer to a bowl to cool to room temperature.

Scoop the ice cream into dessert bowls. Top with the apricot compote. Garnish with a lemon balm or mint leaf. Serve immediately.
