Port & Honey Poached Fruit · GF

kept bytoreapage

Poaching dried fruit is a great way to satisfy your fruit cravings when spring’s fruits haven’t rolled in yet. But it’s not just a substitute for fresh, poached dried fruit has a wonderfully chewy texture all its own. Feel free to substitute other dried fruit in this recipe; remember bright, tart flavors (dried cherries and mango, for example) will be better poached in the white port, while deep, earthy flavors (like dates and figs) work best with the tawny.


Tawny Port Poached Figs
10 ounces tawny port
5 ounces good quality honey
optional: 1/2 a vanilla pod (perhaps one leftover from the Four Cheese Cheesecake?)
1/4 tsp salt
5 ounces dried, black mission figs

White Port Poached Apricots
10 ounces white port
5 ounces good quality honey
optional: 1/2 a vanilla pod
1/4 tsp salt
5 ounces dried apricots
