Don’t you just love a one pot dish that takes seconds to throw together but tastes really delicious and looks like you have been slaving for hours in the kitchen! If so, this is one is for you! I know there will be a cohort of people who don’t agree with sweet and savoury being mixed together to form a main meal. To them, I say I, yes i largely agree but open your hearts to this recipe it’s proper lovely,  warming and extremely kid friendly due to the sweetness of the apricots.  Don’t be worrying about the alcohol and kids, it will have evaporated leaving behind a lovely tangy flavour!! As my son asked, “ is this comfort food?” To which I replied “absolutely”!!!!!
