Apricot seeds

Leucadian | Nov 23, 2007 06:49 PM

Does anyone have experience in using apricot pits? I thought about using a surplus last summer to make amaretti. I have heard that they have to be treated to inactivate the cyanide (?) in them, but an organic gardening book from the 70's recommends eating them as is, not even toasted. This is posted way in advance of my apricot crop, but maybe this'll give time to collect info.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
