DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, stir sugar into water and wine.
  • Slit vanilla bean open along the side and spread it apart exposing the tiny dot-like seeds.
  • Cut the vanilla bean crosswise into several pieces and place them in the pan.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook 5 minutes.
  • Add apricots; shake them to settle them into liquid.
  • Heat just until mixture begins to boil.
  • Apricots should be tender but not falling apart.
  • Cook slightly longer if fruit is still firm.
  • Using a slotted spoon, gently remove apricots, leaving liquid in pan.
  • With cover off, reduce poaching liquid to about 1/2 cup.
  • Remove and discard vanilla bean pieces.
  • Pour concentrated syrup over apricots.
  • Cool; chill if time permits before serving.
