Chef Jeremiah Tower thinks that there are no better apricots than the rich, soft pillows of glacéed fruit that come from Australia.

  1. 1 cup Armagnac
  2. 12 glacéed apricots, preferably Australian
  3. 1/4 cup sugar
  4. 1 tablespoon pomegranate juice (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°. Heat the Armagnac in a small saucepan. Arrange the apricots in a glass baking dish and pour the Armagnac on top. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  2. Drain the hot Armagnac into a large skillet and carefully ignite it. When the flames die down, add the sugar and simmer over moderately high heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the pomegranate juice and the apricots and simmer over low heat, turning them twice, until the syrup is reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 3 minutes; let cool. Thickly slice the apricots and store them in the syrup.
Make Ahead The apricots can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Serve With Lemon Cornmeal Cakes with Lapsang Souchong Chocolate Sauce
