Apricots are often overlooked during summer fruit season, which is too bad, because they’re not only delicious but a great source of nutrients. You can eat 5 whole apricots for under 100 calories, and you get 4 grams of fiber to boot. With a small handful of nuts they make the perfect snack, or you can use them in one of these delicious recipes:
Golden Apricot Cake (just sub apricots for the nectarines)
Almond and Apricot Stuffed Pork Chops (use fresh instead of dried)
Chicken and Apricot Pizza with Caramelized Onions (use fresh instead of dried)
When picking apricots, look for a soft texture (the mushy ones with small brown spots are often sweetest) and a deep orange color with a little red tinge. If the ones you buy are hard and light orange, just let them sit at room temperature for a few days to ripen up. However you choose to eat them, enjoy!
