Step 1

In a small saucepan stir together the sugar, water, lemon juice and the gingerroot and simmer the mixture, covered, for 5 minutes. Add the apricots, baste them with the syrup, and poach them, covered, over moderately-low heat for 3 minutes, or until they are just tender.

Stir in the raspberries gently, poach the mixture for 1 minute, and divide it between 4 bowls. Sprinkle the compote with the almonds, garnish it with the mint, and serve it warm or at room temperature.
