Apricots and Figs with lavender and honey

Doesn’t that look delicious?!  Summer is the perfect time for light and fruity desserts and this dish really tops the charts with sophistication.  It’s a rather easy dish to prepare and can be done hours ahead of when you want to serve it.

You will need:
1/2 cup good quality honey
2 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried lavender blossoms, plus more for garnish
12 apricots, halved and pitted
18 fresh figs, halved lengthwise

In a large nonstick skillet, boil the honey with the lemon juice and lavender blossoms over high heat until reduced a bit, approximately 1 minute.

Arrange the apricots in the skillet, cut sides down and cook over high heat until just tender, 2 minutes.  Turn and cook until softened, about 1 minute more.  Transfer the apricots to a plate using a slotted spoon.

Add the figs to the skillet and cook over high heat until softened, approximately 2 minutes, turing once.  Spoon the figs and juices over the apricots.  Garnish with the lavender sprigs and serve.

time: 30 minutes
serves: about 10
