Relatives to peaches, apricots are small, golden orange fruits, with velvety skin and flesh, not too juicy but definitely smooth and sweet. Some describe their flavour as almost musky, with a faint tartness that lies somewhere between a peach and a plum.
Apricots are rich in many plant antioxidants. Some of these are the vitamin antioxidants so familiar to regular users of this site. Overall, consider the apricot to be a great food that provides you with the protective effects of antioxidants while adding very few calories to your daily total.
Apricots can be served in many different ways. They can be sliced and added to hot or cold cereals. Furthermore they may be added to hot plates, such as chicken or vegetable stews with the addition of diced apricots. Last but not least they can also be served in green salads during the season.
