Apricots are a sweet fruit thought to have originated in Armenia.
Choose an apricot based on how soft it is. Ripe ones are soft if touched. Do not select ones have hints of green as they will never fully develop. If hard, leave them at room temperature for a day or two. Ripe apricots need to be eaten immediately as they do not store well.
Apricots have a variety of uses. They can be eaten from the hand for a sweet snack. They can also be dried to be eaten for later. Apricots also go great with ham. You can make a delicious ham by baking it with a glaze of honey and apricot.
