Apricot Stew with Mulberries and Sultana Raisins
(Kaymakli Kayısı Yahnisi - Cappadocia - Central Anatolia Region)
1 cup dried apricots, boil 2 min.and drain
1/2 cup molasses
1/3 cup mixture of dried mulberries and Sultana or Golden raisins
2-3 small slices of orange rinds
1 tbsp butter
3/4 cup water
Pinch of salt
Walnuts, crumbled, lightly toasted
Place all the ingredients in a medium pot. First bring to boil. Then simmer until most of the water evaporates.
Place one tablespoon of Thick Turkish Cream (Kaymak) on top of each serving. Sprinkle some walnuts and serve while still warm.
I suggest you to serve this dessert with a spoon. While eating, make sure to get some fruits, Kaymak and syrup with each spoon :)
