Apricots and Cherries — but the Apricot is the topic today. The Apricot is in season and the fruit is wonderful to eat but there will be a lot of stone left after eating Apricots. There is a white seed inside of a stone. The seeds are sweet and have Almond flavor. In fact the Italian liqueur amaretto and amaretti biscotti are flavored with extract of apricot kernels rather than almonds. And Almond pudding, a popular dessert in Asia, is also made with Apricot seeds, not almonds. The flavor is wonderful when you make it yourself.
