Ingredients

Directions

Wash and then soak the dried apricots in 2 cups of water overnight.

Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees.

Drain the apricots over a bowl. Transfer the liquid to a saucepan and add the sugar, cardamom pods, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and add the apricots. Cover the apricots with a small sheet of parchment paper. Cover the pan and poach the apricots in a 300-degree oven for 1 1/2 hours. Then let the apricots cool in their liquid; then chill.

Just before serving, lift out the apricots to drain. Mix the yogurt and ricotta together, open each apricot and stuff it with the yogurt mixture. Place the stuffed apricots on a serving plate, spoon over a little syrup. Garnish with pistachios. Recommended drink: Camomile Tea, infused with cardamom, cinnamon and clove
