Step 1: Cut the apricots in half and remove the stone, then set aside.

Step 2: Place a large high side frying pan over a medium high heat. Add the Sparkling Chardonnay and castor sugar and once the sugar has dissolved, add the apricots, rosemary & bay leaves.

Step 3: Bring the pan to simmering point then turn down the heat to a very gentle simmer.

Step 4: Allow the apricots to cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until cooked through and soft (this timing will depend on the ripeness of the apricots).

Step 5: Carefully remove the apricots from the pan and place onto a serving platter, then increase the heat of the pan and reduce the sparkling chardonnay by half to create a syrup.

Step 6: Remove and pour over the apricots along with the rosemary & bay, set aside to cool and serve slightly warm or at room temperature with runny cream or crème fraiche.
