Preparing the apricots -- 10 minutes + waiting time

SOAK the dried apricots in water for 1 to 2 hours before continuing. After this time has passed, drain the apricots and put them aside.

Squeeze juice from 4 oranges. Finely chop the almonds or hazelnuts and set aside.

Putting it together -- 15 minutes

Pour the freshly squeezed orange juice into the small saucepan. Put on low heat. Make a syrup using star anise, honey and the stick of cinnamon.

Bring the orange juice to a boil and keep stirring until the honey has been dissolved. You can add more honey as you'd like. Let simmer until the syrup becomes thick, this will usually take up 6 to 8 minutes.

Season the mascarpone cheese using the slightly cooled off syrup (don't use all of it!). Heat the apricots using the remaining syrup

Divide the mango into strips, cubes or any shape you'd like. Grab a plate and repeat the next step for each plate:

Divide some of the mango, 4 warm apricots, a part of the mascarpone mixture and chopped hazelnuts or walnuts on each plate.

Chop up some mint and garnish each plate with id to add some color, enjoy!
