Food on Friday: Apricots and Nectarines


ON

Okey medokey, it's Food on Friday time again.  This time we are going to build a collection of recipes using apricots and/or nectarines – fresh or dried.

Both apricots and nectarines go well with:

Almonds
Brandy
Cinnamon
Cream
Honey
Sugar
Vanilla




And apricots also go well with:

Barley
Cardamom
Chicken
Dried fruit
Lamb
Pistachios
Rice
Yoghurt


And nectarines also go well with:

Amaretto
Brown sugar
Butter
Champagne
Cloves
Duck
Ginger
Ice-cream
Lemons
Macadamia nuts
Pork
Raspberries
Red wine
Strawberries
Mascarpone

Linking up is easy – just put your name and the name of the dish into the first Mr Linky box and paste the url for your post into the second.

There are no rules but it would be great if you checked out some of the other links.  To make it easier for you to choose I have created a Pinboard for this and will be pinning the links that come in as fast as I can! 

I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Have fun.

    1. I just checked and found that a nectarine is a sort of peach - so peach dishes are certainly ok!

  13. Well Carole I do not have any apricot recipes, I am not a fan of apricots, but I did have a nectarine recipe for Fresh Nectarine and Blueberry Galette. Thanks so much for letting me link up.

  18. I was never an apricot lover but they remind me of my grandpa so they're not all bad. But nectarines? I'm a BIG fan. Not just the taste but the smell and more memories as well. Can't wait to try some of these recipes!

  19. Carole, I read some of the comments and noted you accept peaches too. So am submitting both my peachy bakes :)

  20. Interesting round up. I only have one nectarine recipe to share, but it's a yummy one. My summer rolls with surimi and nectarine make me wish for summer.

  26. I mostly came over for inspiration. I haven't seen any fresh nectarines or apricots yet around these parts, but they will be coming in the next few weeks. While here, I left you a couple of old recipes that I've used in the past. One for a no-cook breakfast called "pukkolla" using dried apricots, and another for a cheat's cheesecake dessert made individual cups, using fresh nectarines. I tend to make this one all the time to give myself a little treat, using whatever fresh fruit I have on hand!

  28. Thanks for the link up. Last week I wrote about apricots. I was so surprised when the comments came. Many were, "I have never tried an apricot" kind of comments. I suppose it is an old fashioned fruit that is going out of style, they are cutting down so many of the trees and orchards in this area, but not at my house. We just planted an apricot and pear tree. I bought a bunch of apricots and couldn't keep my kids out of them. I love that they raid the fruit bowl instead of looking for sugary snacks.

  29. Tis the season for these wonderful stone fruits, great looking recipes every one!

  34. Hi Carole! Thanks for the invite! I didn't see your message right away - it went into spam (gasp)!! I hope it's not too late to link up my Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Apricot Ginger Glaze. Thanks again!!

  35. Hi Carole, thanks again for the invite - quite an array of amazing recipes here - I added my "Percoche Clafoutis" since the Percoche is a cross between an apricot and a peach, also called "Peach Apricots" - hope that is all right with you. Unfortunately, I added the link twice, maybe you could be so kind and delete the first of the two link-ups! Thank you very much! And many thanks also for the continued support!
