They look very delicious- often ones from the supermarket are quite tasteless. My mum makes a really nice apricot jam but it would be nice to try a few different apricot recipes :)
Apricots are definitely in the category of "fruits that are divine when grown at home, but completely crap when bought at the supermarket".I'm envious - my little tree will need a couple more years before it bears any quantity of fruit.
Are you having any trouble with birds? It's impossible for me here to get any fruit without netting the trees. Eastern Rosellas are the main problem.
Apricot yoghurt smoothies...apricot shortcake... apricot sorbet...dried apricots... currently bottling buckets of them. Had one that didn't seal and made apricot muffins. Best way to eat them is still definately raw and ripe, right off the tree.Bev, we've been lucky, no issues with birds this year. While the blackbird ate all the raspberries and most of the cherries he didn't get to the apricots. Mostly because he is now buried under it.Not a nice story. It involves small cages baited with cherries, a small stick, a long string hanging out of a window and the right moment when pulling it.
