Looks fantastic! I love apricots! Just made a peach ice cream; but, did not even consider tossing in some apricots, I will have to next time!

Um, you mean besides send them to me? Looks awesome – I’m jealous. Then again, I picked my first bowl of black raspberries today. Another two straight weeks of twice daily picking before they are gone. I can envision exactly the same sequence but in purple!

It saddens me to think of the potential video making team we could be. While you’re on ice cream detail I would be making salsa and thinking about numerous other things I could do with that tree. On a break I would climb it!

Panini Kathy: Actually, the apricots are at the house we’re renting right now. We haven’t moved into the new place yet, still doing some painting and renovation work. We were worried that we would have to move before the apricots were ripe, but the hot weather helped them to ripen faster than we expected!
Chez US: I absolutely love peach ice cream! I haven’t tried apricot ice cream yet, but I think it would be good. Or like you said, a combination of peaches and apricots! The photo above is actually apricot frozen yogurt. It was good, but not quite the same as ice cream!
Andrea: I’m the one who’s jealous! Black raspberries?? Yum!!
Bethany Actually: It’s apricot frozen yogurt. I just blended some greek yogurt, fresh apricots, vanilla extract, and agave nectar and put the mixture in my ice cream maker. It was good!
HoneyB: It’s actually frozen yogurt, but I’m thinking about trying some apricot ice cream soon, too!
Amanda: I’m thinking about making it a regular thing, you should do it too!
Jonathan: It would be fun to make videos if I had someone like you to actually do all the work! When will you be in San Diego? 🙂
Patricia Scarpin: That’s good because I just haven’t had much time lately to write anything 🙂
TomC: Well, you’d better go eat!

oh yum – I’ve been craving fruit ice cream – I was thinking peaches, but those apricots look delicious .

The apricot frozen yogurt looks amazing Nicole! YUMMMM Peach ice cream is my absolute favorite so I’m sure that I would love this just as well. My Mom gave me a basket full of apricots a few weeks ago so we made jam (with splenda instead of sugar) and it was delicious! Great photos, I’m sure the apricots would be good in a nice salsa as well…

Nicole, those photographs are positively gorgeous!

Lucky you! A whole treeful!

Try making some peach Jolly Ranchers. Those are good.

I was just in CA and had fresh apricots off of a friend’s tree. It was enough to make me consider a move. Your yogurt looks like the perfect way to use them up!
July 12, 2008 at 3:30 am
Such great ways with the apricots! And you know that the kernel (the ‘almond’ inside) is edible too?
July 12, 2008 at 2:26 pm
I must say very resourceful of you to make use of that tree. I’ve read before that an Indian Chief before drinks apricot juice always as his beverage and he live for more than a 100 years. http://www.foodista.com/

I read “apricots” and then looked at the color of that ice cream and gasped! Such beauty!
July 13, 2008 at 2:03 pm
wow! this looks beautiful! apricot ice cream sounds like heaven! Maybe if you have some leftovers still, you could mix up an apricot cocktail for my blog event! I’d love to see what you come up with:
July 14, 2008 at 4:33 am
That is a problem I would like to have, a tree full of apricots! Love what you chose to make with them. Great photos!
July 14, 2008 at 5:59 am
Nice… I love apricots and your icecream looks delicious with its nice light color and texture. Ciao. Orchidea
July 16, 2008 at 6:31 am
They all look very very good! Do you have a recipe for the ice cream? I just bought an ice cream maker and on the hunt for good tasting point worthy healthy ice cream recipes.

This makes me really miss the apricot trees we used to have out in East County. Gorgeous color! And I can just imagine the sweet fragrance of that beautiful fruit!
July 29, 2008 at 9:22 pm
I’m so jealous! I wish I had too many apricots, after 5 years of growing my tree I can’t even manage to get one apricot!
Congrats on the new house!

Wow, what a great recipe to link to! We just did a simple apricot dish tossed with mint, but this looks positively delectable. I wonder if the cobbler recipe might surface?

Beware of eating the seed! I used to eat the seeds of everything until I read a story of people being poisoned by apricot kernels. Now I don’t eat the seeds at all. Please inform yourself on the possible risks before eating kernels.
