greygarious has been buying whole dried apricots from ApricotKing Orchards, and loves the deep apricot-almond flavor the pits lend the fruit. In fact, apricot kernels are often used for their almond flavor: greygarious has seen them used in amaretti cookies, while amaretto liqueur can be made from either almonds or apricot kernels.
Whole, dried apricots known as “slip-pit” apricots have an admirable property: The pits and fruit do not cling to each other during the drying process, so the kernels slip right out, making the apricots both delicious and easy to eat. “I am utterly sold on these babies,” says greygarious.
