Apricots in Wine and Rosemary

This post is also available in: Italiano

You still find apricots in the market in July. I found this recipe in a book by Marianne Paquin: “In Tavola Appena Colti!” The combination of apricots and rosemary really interested me and I wanted to experience it. My family loved it. We could define it as a nice treat to substitute dessert.
