Look at what I bought this week!
They were so ripe and juicy that I could not resist, and they were such a good price I ought to have bought more than I did!
And so what did I do with these delightful morsels of sunshine in a stone fruit?
I stewed them of course!
I simmered them down with a little sugar and water for around 45 minutes until they became thick and pulpy and quite a dark orange.
Wouldn't you know it? I forgot to photograph the finished apricots!
Now I really did have a very productive afternoon in the kitchen yesterday, I made a lovely apple teacake, two loaves of bread and a roast pork and vegetables for dinner!
And to top off an alltogether lovely day, one of the cows in the paddock across from our house gave birth to the most beautiful little calf!
I tried to get a photo this morning, but my camera wouldn't zoom in enough and I really didn't want an altercation with the barbed wire fence to get closer! So I will wait until they wander over here....
