Harvest indeed. Or perhaps death by home grown apricots.
We have a bumper crop at the moment.
I'm no gardener, I may have said that before, but we were very lucky to have several established fruit trees on our property when we purchased it.
The Man of the House came home from work yesterday, counted the stones on the kitchen counter and then asked me if I'd eaten twenty apricots today.
"Hmm, I've eaten 20 apricots in the last hour or so!" Perhaps a slight over exaggeration but not by much!
No tummy ache yet!
Time for stewing.
I've been stewing up literally hundreds this afternoon thanks to my lovely local friend's advice on what to do.
Enough apricots to cover the bottom of the pot and a little bit of water. Cook til soft. EASY!
They taste great off the tree but even better stewed, super sweet.
Now it's time for pie.
It is cooking away in the oven now so here's a pic of one I prepared earlier.
Let me know if you try it. Serve with icecream or cream, mmmm.
Do you have fruit trees? Would you like some?
