Apricot, Fresh

Apricots are small golden stonefruits with an edible yellow/golden skin, inedible pit, and a yellow flesh that has a fabulous sweet, peach-like taste.  They taste like a stronger, more flavorful peach.  They are delicious out-of-hand, when ripe.  They may be added to salads, ice creams and tarts.  They make wonderful sauces & syrups.  They can also be grilled or poached and served with chicken or pork entrees.
