Apricots

Ahhh... apricots! Just a the name can make your mouth water and your senses become active. Closely related to peaches, apricots are small golden orange fruits with velvety skin. Their juicy flesh manages to uniquely combine peach-like-sweet with tang and they are a summer favourite at their peak for a few short months. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A and C and are rich in potassium and fibre. 

How to pick:

Choose apricots that are firm to touch and plump in appearance. Avoid any apricots that are too soft or have brown marks or blemishes. 

How to store:

Store your apricots in a cool place until ripened. Once ready to eat they can be placed in the refrigerator to stop them from over ripening. 

How to prepare:

Best enjoyed as they are, apricots are delicious when stewed, used in baking or to make jam.
