Aren’t they cute these little babies ?!
Oh, yes I love apricots !

It’s maybe a little bit early for the season, but when I saw them at the farmer market last Sunday, I couldn’t resist and bought a handful of them.

I baked some in little chocolate cakes and I also prepared some in salad.

The cakes tasted good but were unexpectedly hard. It was like a cookie crunch with the look of a friand ! So I’ll have to make an other batch with an improved recipe…

For the salad, easy, I just mixed chopped light roasted macadamias, fresh mint and a bit of syrup on the apricot slices.
Have you ever tried the mint/apricot combination ? It was my first time and I would say that they compliment well each other in colour and taste.
