#Two recipes competed to take this space in the collection. My taste buds chose this one because there is a good mixture of fresh and dried fruits with a rich aroma of vanilla.#
Put the pomegranate molasses, water, sugar and mineral water into a non-aluminium pan. Boil until sugar dissolves. Add the vanilla pod and scraped seeds.
First add the pears and cook covered over very low heat for 10-30 minutes depending on how ripe they are. Then drop in the apples and cook uncovered until they are tender.
Remove fruit from pan Into a bowl with a slotted spoon.
Then boil the syrup until reduced by half. Taste and add some more sugar or a squeeze of lemon juice to adjust the sweetness or tartness. Remove the vanilla pod.
Add the apricots and prunes to the bowl of fruit and pour hot syrup over. Cook cover and chill
Serve in individual dessert bowls. Sprinkle a handful of pomegranate seeds and serve with dollops of cream.
