Apricots are tasty and full of beta-carotene and fiber. Fresh apricots are on the market for only a short period of time, so get ’em while you can!
Apricots can be frozen for use year-round. Wash, halve, pit the fruit; peel and slice if desired. If you choose not to peel, blanche in boiling water for 1/2 minute to keep the skin from toughening.
