This fragrant compote of dried fruit, flavoured with rose or orange flower water, is one of our family favourites. It can be made just with apricots and raisins, but we like to include other fruit — peaches, pears, prunes or figs. The dish must be macerated for 48 hours, and will keep longer. We often eat it for breakfast if any is left over from dessert.
