Precious Apricots

In Latin the word Apricot means precious. Perhaps they were so labelled because they ripen earlier than other summer fruit. But regardless of the word they are possibly my favourite fruit and the first taste is eagerly waited for each year

They have a delicate flavour with a sweet aroma and let's face it you either love or hate the velvety smoothness of the skin.

Delicious eaten whole and fresh or they can be cooked in a multitude of ways.We made Apricot Chicken for dinner using pureed fresh apricots. The pureed parsnip was the last of the parsnips from our garden..sweet and fresh.
