Ingredients

  • 2 oranges, preferably unwaxed
  • 8 dried apricots, finely chopped
  • 8 dates, pitted and finely chopped
  • 4 dried figs, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly crushed
  • 6 saffron threads
  • 5 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 4 thin slices whole-wheat or multigrain baguette, toasted

Preparation

  1. 1. Use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of zest from 1 orange. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add the zest and boil for 2 minutes. Drain in a sieve, then immediately rinse under cold water until cool. Cut the zest lengthwise into fine slivers.
  2. 2. Squeeze the juice of the zested orange into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then stir in the apricots, dates, and figs. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Squeeze the juice from the remaining orange. In a deep skillet, heat the honey over medium heat until pale caramel in color. Add the orange juice, stir well, and bring to a boil. Add the dried fruit mixture and simmer for 5-6 minutes.
  4. 4. Add the cumin, saffron, vinegar, and orange zest. Mix well and transfer to a bowl. Serve warm or at room temperature with toasts.
