Remarks

Of course, you can make this dessert with any seasonal fresh fruit that you have available. It's particularly good in a blackcurrant or raspberry version.

This dessert can be kept for an hour or two once made, but should be covered with a plastic film and refrigerated.

For a rather more sophisticated version, you can add small pieces of shortbread or finger biscuits after the apricot coulis.
