Apricots

Brush the apricot halves with honey; do not hesitate to fill the pit with honey, especially if your fruit is not very ripe.

Place a few sprigs of fresh rosemary on the grill and cook over the coals over medium heat. Watch the cooking: the apricots are ready when they are very tender and about to turn into a compote!
