100 Vegetables (and fruits): #3 Apricots

Summery Sweet Apricot Salad with Orange and Thyme

Apricots are another fruit with both sweet and savoury uses. With their fresh fruity flavour they add a lightness and great colour contrast to salads and fruit salads. They bake and poach well and pair surprisingly well with vegetables like okra.

Dried apricots also have numerous applications in the kitchen, either pureed or soaked and cooked.

We find store-bought apricots are not as good flavour-wise and in texture as home grown fruit, so keep them for salads and cooked dishes. When we have the delight of a gift of home-grown apricots, they are eaten as-is.
