Here’s a roundup of delicious, simple apricot recipes from some amazing food bloggers. This fruit is fantastic to work with on account of its versatility: it can be grilled, baked, poached, simmered, and added fresh or dried. Apricot has been a star ingredient in African and Turkish cuisines: given that the fruit allegedly comes from the Caucus region, it’s unsurprising that the quality remains legendary throughout Eurasia.
As a reminder, look for the apricots with a velvety texture that yields gently to the touch, but is not mushy. To open, simply take a sharp paring knife and work the fruit around the pit. Twist to extricate the apricot from its stone, and then cut into smaller shapes if desired.
