The Technique

Apricots

Apricots are a delicate stone fruit available from May to August that are ideal to use in piestarts & galettes. They may also be used to make wonderful jams & jellies. Apricots offer many health benefits as they are good sources of beta carotene, vitamin C & fiber & help improve digestion. Apricots are relatively small in size compared to other stone fruits & can range in color from yellow to orange. The flesh may be either tart or sweet but firm. The skin is best described as velvety in texture. Since the growing season is short enjoy the fresh fruit while you can but look for dried apricots year round.

How To Peel Apricots

Apricots are from the rose family, specifically Prunus armeniaca, & are considered similar to peaches, almonds & cherries. They should have a sweet fragrance. Their delicate nature makes poaching them the best technique to use to remove the skins quickly.

Start by cutting the apricot on a wooden board stem end to stem end then twist the fruit open to real the pit & remove it. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a small sauce pan. Cook the apricot halves, in batches, 3 to 5 minutes or until firm but tender. The color will change from a golden orange to a deep, rich orange hue. Remove with a slotted spoon. Let stand 10 minutes. Gently peel the skins away & discard them.
