What to Eat Right Now: Apricots
The gold standard apricot is the small, puckery-sweet, perfumed Blenheim. Or look for the new kid on the block, the Candy Cot, which is almost sugary by comparison. Stewed, this fruit is gorgeous over ice cream or a light cake. Fresh slices can be served alongside beef, poultry, pork, or shellfish. And pureed peeled apricots make for one delicious Bellini.
