Apricots have been cultivated in China for
over 4,000 years. As a child, I used to love the taste of
apricot kernels (inside the apricot pit) because they tasted
like almonds. Now I’ve learned they are poisonous until
roasted. They are also used to make amaretto and macaroon
cookies. This is a perfect side dish when you have ham slices
and have run out of bacon.
