Delicious things to make with apricot - 1238 recipes

Growing up my family had an apricot tree in our backyard. Every year, what seemed like hundreds of apricots would fall from our tree. My mother would creatively think of how to use them, baking them into tarts, pies, or cobblers, making jam and freezing some. Apricots are related to the peach and plum, and are high in vitamin A, making them a great addition to dishes. These small fruits aren’t only limited to sweets treats, try tossing a few apricots in salads, pair them with pork or a burrata cheese, for and savory and sweet appetizer or main dish! Whether you are using dried apricots, canned or fresh, this delicious fruit is a welcome ingredient to any dish!
