An apricot love affair

Hosted by

Sometimes a fruit simply should not be missed. That's the case with the Golden Sweet, an apricot variety that's tantalizingly sweet and tart at the same time. You can find it at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market for two beautiful weeks and we suggest you hop to it. Find them at the Frog Hollow Farm stand. In Brentwood up in northern California, Frog Hollow has been certified organic since 1989, using seaweed, fish, limestone and compost to help cherry, peach and apricot trees thrive.

At her bakeries, coffee and tea shops in LA, pastry chef Valerie Gordon is plating apricots with toasted almonds, fresh basil, honey, olive oil and crème fraîche. Let the love affair begin. Find her recipe on the Good Food blog.
