A good winter dessert when fresh fruit supplies are limited.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 5–10 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 pitted dried plums, chopped
  • 6 dried apricots, chopped

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • Yogurt or honey, to serve

Directions
