Apricots, with their naturally rich flavour and texture get all the more enjoyable after a simple process of deseeding and stewing. Thanks to their sweetness, it suffices to add just a teaspoon of sugar to the custard, helping restrict the calories further.
Walnuts make a great garnish for the Stewed Apricots with Vanilla Custard as their mild saltiness highlights the flavours of this dessert very well.
