I mentioned getting some particularly delicious apricots for free last week, we've been getting quite a stash in the freezer for our smoothies and were grateful to be offered even more. I wanted to make some sort of sweet treat to offer in thanks and came across this recipe. It looked so beautiful that I couldn't resist trying it (but would be delighted to hear of any other apricot recipes too).
I also decided to make some apricot jam (using Pomona's Pectin - 8 cups apricots to a little less than 2 cups sugar) with some of the very ripe ones to use as a spread in our crepes and to give some as gifts. I love having extra preserves on hand to give to people who would enjoy them.
Then we were offered even more apricots so I dug out my solar dryer and put it to use for the first time this season.
All that goodness and we still have the tree on this property (a later not as flavourful variety) to harvest. Yum!
