Fruit Tajine

Using Alexandra's Tajine Spice


450g fresh stone fruit, peeled and pitted 1/4 cup sliced dried apricots 1/4 cup chopped fresh or dried dates 1/4 cup pomegranate molasses or brown rice syrup 1 tsp grated fresh ginger 1 tsp Alexandra’s Tajine Spice 2 Tbsp lemon juice


Cut larger fruit into quarters and smaller fruit into halves. In a flameproof tajine or a heavy bottomed pan, combine fresh fruit, apricots, dates, molasses, ginger and Alexandra’s Tajine Spice. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until juices release and fruit is slightly tender. Stir in lemon juice and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until fruit is soft.

Serve warm or chilled with yoghurt or rice (the mixture will thicken when cooled).
