– Baked Apricots with Honey and Almonds –
Apricots are such a delicate and beautiful fruit, too bad they are only around during the late spring and early summer months. However, when they are in-season, there is nothing better than fresh apricots. They can be eaten straight off the tree, use them to make a cake, make fresh jam with them, and even bake them! This recipe of baked apricots with honey and almonds is a great twist on this lovely fruit. This tasty dessert is very popular in the region of Andalucia, especially in the city of Sevilla. The best part about this dessert is that it´s above and beyond easy to make! These baked apricots go great with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. In this recipe I made my own homemade whipped cream, but you can always use the store bought kind. Watch the video below on how to make these baked apricots with honey and almonds, and enjoy the fruits of the season. Salud!
