Tonight I am thinking about apricots.

Apricot Orchard, Apricot Trees, Apricots ready for harvest, Patterson, CaliforniaYesterday I was driving down a road between apricot orchards that were ready for harvest.

Apricot Harvest, Apricot Picking, Bucket of ApricotsThis made me think of one year when I helped pick some apricots.

Drying Apricots, Apricot Trays, Air Dried Apricots, Apricot HalvesWe cut them in half, removed the stones and set them out to dry.

Apricot Ice Cream, Apricot Fiesta, Patterson, California, Apricot HarvestI am also remembering the great apricot ice cream they have at the Patterson Apricot Fiesta each year. Unfortunately it was cancelled this year, just as it was last year.

Apricot Jam, Apricot Preserves, Jelly, Jam, Fruit PreservesApricot preserves are also really good. I think I still have some in my refrigerator and am now thinking of a peanut butter sandwich with apricot preserves.
