APRICOT RECIPES - ABRICOTS: RECETTES

The apricot season has just started and beautiful ripe fruits are invading the stalls...

As the harvest period is quite limited and we only get to enjoy apricots for a very short lapse of time (June - August), it is better to start cooking and baking with them as early as possible. Nothing quite compares to a juicy and fragrant apricot which has been freshly picked from the tree.

It is for that reason that I've decided to compile my apricot-based recipes as well as a few of them I have found while surfing on the internet. So don't forget to buy regional (or as sustainably as possible) as well as seasonal products, run to the kitchen and enjoy what nature offers plentifully!

Isn't life beautiful?

Amaretti, Apricot Jam & Coconut Bars (see recipe)
Apricot Clafoutis (see recipe)
Apricot Muffins (see recipe)
