Joy the Baker's 'Simple Roasted Apricots With Honey Mascarpone' recipe merges what are often considered to be antithetical flavors. Sweet fruits are rarely paired with salty additives, largely to the dismay of those who enjoy the merger of these two flavors. This blog fully embraces the culinary concept however, providing the best of both worlds.
Joy began this dish with the apricots by basting them in granulated sugar. A quick roasting allowed the sweet ingredients to come together while also crisping the top of the fleshy treats, making for an interesting hard yet soft texture. Dollops of sugary honey mascarpone cheese and shreds of mint topped off the orange concoctions, producing a rather aesthetically pleasing appetizer. The 5 minute preparation process will no doubt entice dessert aficionados.
