This golden fruit can be sliced to hot or cold cereal in the morning or to chicken dishes. Apricots are succulent with a velvety skin and a juicy flesh. They are also sweet with a faint tartness and a great source of fiber.
In addition, they are perfect for cakes and a great accompaniment to lamb. To eat at their best, leave them at room temperature to ripen.
Chopped apricots can be added to whole-grain pancakes, while dried diced apricots can be added to chicken or vegetable stews. The addition of fresh apricots can enhance the taste of green salads.
