Have to admit when I first read over this recipe; I had visions of that awful fruit mixture that used to get passed around & you would stir & add more fruit....I can’t say, perhaps it was only prepared here in Texas, but, yuk!
Anyway, decided to give it a whirl- any recipe with vanilla beans & star anise has to be worth it. I went with one apple & some nectarines and pluots that needed a mission.The sauce was quite tasty and it made a pretty little dessert for our dinner. My only question was that the sauce needed much longer to reduce & it did not seem thick enough. Guess I could have doctored it up, but the taste was yummy!
