Apricots are tricky little numbers. It's all together too easy to come home with a bag of tasteless or mealy nonsense instead of juicy aromatic fruit! Be sure to smell the apricots - they should smell like you want the fruit to taste. As with almost all fruits, look for apricots that feel heavy for their size.
Truly ripe and delicious fresh apricots are best enjoyed, in my humble opinion, out of hand or sliced over ice cream. They can also be diced into salsas or baked into delicious Apricot Tarts.
