Apricot jelly with caramelised apricots and thick cream

all details

Select plump fruit with a hint of delicate perfume and rich golden-orange skin; avoid any that are greenish-yellow as they will be tasteless. Remove the stone before cooking as it is very bitter. Unless you plan to eat them immediately, choose slightly firm examples and let them ripen in the fruit bowl. Generally, the stronger the colour, the sweeter the apricot.

For the jelly

Place apricot mixture in a small saucepan, bring to a simmer, remove from heat, add gelatine mixture and stir until well combined. Cool slightly and pour mixture into 4 x 150ml jelly moulds, cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.

For the caramelised apricots

Cut 4 large seeded apricots in half. Place 1/2 cup caster sugar in a shallow bowl. Dip cut side of apricots in caster sugar to coat. Place under a hot grill, cut side up, for 3-4 minutes or until warm and caramelised.

Dip jelly moulds in hot water for 3-4 seconds, then turn onto serving plates and serve with caramelised apricots and a dollop of thick cream.
