Recipe: Roasted apricots


Total time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Servings: 6

12 small to medium apricots, halved and pitted

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons ( 1/4 stick) butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Arrange the apricots cut side up in a 10-inch skillet so they fit close together. Drizzle the honey over the apricots. Put a small piece of butter in each apricot cavity. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the apricots. Place in the oven.

2. After 15 minutes, raise the temperature to 400 degrees. Remove the apricots from the oven and baste them with the pan juices, then return to the oven. Continue to baste the apricots every 10 minutes. Roast until the apricots begin to caramelize and the liquid is reduced to a saucy consistency, about 45 minutes total.
