Sous Vide Cardamom Apricots

Anova Culinary

Apricots are just coming into season here in Northern California. Eaten fresh, they can be hit or miss — all too often, the fruit is sour or mealy in texture. Cooking the fruit, however, transforms even the most mediocre apricots into a delicious treat. The Anova Precision Cooker makes the process a snap: Simply seal pitted apricot halves with a bit of butter, warm spices and salt, and you're only an hour away from a savory dessert or snack.
