Addicted to Apricots

Most commonly eaten as a jam, I often forget how much I enjoy this fruit. Dried apricots make a great snack and the delicate flavour from the fresh fruit is, well... addictive. Try some of these recipes that use fresh, dried or preserved apricots, or let me know about your favourties.

Bon Appetit !
