Ingredients & Lore

Apricots are eaten fresh, dried, or juiced. Its skin is velvety and the flesh is floral and sweet. Native to Central Asia, apricots were traded along the Great Silk Road and are now grown on every continent except Antarctica. In the U.S., California produces about 65,000 tons which pales against Turkey, with 795,768 tons or nearly 28% of the world’s supply followed by Iran and Uzbekistan. The Persians called them "yellow plum" (zardaloo) and its small, golden, round shape is immortalized in Arabic as armardine or “moon of faith.” During Ramadan, some observers drink apricot juice to break the fast.
