12 Recipes To Yum Up Your Apricots

By Macki West |

We headed to the farmers market over the weekend and picked up a giant box of the tastiest apricots I have ever gobbled. I think my daughter ate two while walking to the car and another three on the short car ride home, but I can’t be sure as she sits behind me. Now that we’ve eaten our apricots in their pure form for 2 days, it’s time to get creative and find some recipes to bake up something lovely or no-bake, just as long as we use them before they get too soft. Take a look and see all the recipes we came up with and help us decide and get some tips for how to choose and store your own apricots…

12 Recipes To Yum Up Your Apricots

Whole Wheat Apricot Mini Muffins

There are two great things about these,; well, many great things, actually, but I'll share two. First, they are made with whole wheat flour, which goes perfectly with apricots as their flavors pair nicely with earthy flavors like nuts and whole grains. Second, these are in mini form, so this makes for easy portion control. Kids will love them! Little do they know how healthy they are.

When choosing apricots to eat fresh, try to find firm, unblemished ones as they bruise easily.

If they need to ripen, place in a paper bag on the counter for a day or two.

Store ripe apricots in the fridge (they will not ripen in the refrigerator).

Once your apricots gets soft or bruised, try to eat them as soon as possible or use them for cooking.

Planning to make an apricot tart or popsicles or muffins or any type of transformation? Don’t over look the bruised and very ripe bunch. You will most likely get a good deal and they will make your dish taste amazing – just make sure to use them that day.
