This works great as a stand-alone recipe, but also as a component in Jamie’s Summery Feast from Together – see the full collection of menus here.
GET AHEAD Put the thyme into a mug and cover with 150ml of boiling kettle water, discarding the thyme after 1 minute. Put the dried apricots into a blender. Halve, deseed and add the red chilli, drizzle in 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and add a pinch of sea salt. Pour the thyme-infused water into the blender, and blitz until super-smooth. Decant into a nice serving bowl, cool, cover and refrigerate until needed.
