Is there anything so wonderful as a fresh apricot, picked right from the tree, so ripe that it literally bruises in your fingers if you don’t hold it with the lightest touch? You can’t buy apricots like this; they are just too fragile. The commercial growers pick them still hard and let them ripen off the tree. Our next-door neighbor Pat has several apricot trees, now laden with fruit so ripe they are dropping off the tree, bopping you on the head if you aren’t careful. When the apricots are ripe, they are ready and must be picked. They tend to all ripen at once, yielding many more apricots than one or two people can reasonably eat at once. I’m going to try my hand with a few apricot recipes this week. Do you have any that you would like to share? If so, please let us know in the comments. In the meantime, if you have access to a good supply of fresh apricots, here are a few recipes from other food bloggers to check out:
