I made this in my cast iron pot, using a 400g tin of apricots and nectar instead of the peaches. I cooked it on high heat (200deg cel) in the oven for 60mins. It was flavoursome and delicious. Served it with cous cous. More time would have been good, but that was all the time I had. Would definitely try again. Loved it. - 11 Aug 2016
