Juicy white apricots

One of our favorite fruits is back for its one-week-long season. Angelcots, also called white apricots, are a bit milder than the traditional apricot. There’s no sour skin; they’re juicy and sweet. I picked up several boxes at Trader Joe’s this week. Mama and I enjoyed a bowl of them for brunch in our backyard…

Besides the cold and rain, winter gets us down with its endless citrus and lack of juicy, sweet stone fruits. These lovelies are typically only available to us in summer. However, while at our local organic grocer on Friday, I discovered these mouth-watering gems. Mama and I have been cherishing each bite of white nectarine…
