Apricots

Apricots
(Apricots) The apricot is originally a native of eastern Asia, and is member of the Rose family.  From the color or these apricots and because they ripened early in the season, we believe that the apricots in this photo are a variety known as "Royal", which were developed in France.  Apricots will ripen on the kitchen counter, and can be stored for about a week in the refrigerator.  Select apricots are free of blemishes.  When they ripen, they are slightly soft to the touch.  See the nutritional chart below.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
