APRICOT TRANSFORMATION

 

I had several bloggers ask me what I was going to do with the apricots from my neighbor's tree.

Well,

I made them into a pie...

They were beginning to get a bit mushy from the extreme heat we have been having.

Once I started to think about pie...that's all I could think about 😁

So,

Here are the results...

Dave and I had a small piece last night...

It was absolutely divine...

A wonderful pie but not so wonderful for my diet.

Fresh fruit can sure be a downfall.





Just to let you know... yesterday the temperature was 110F at 6 PM

I wilted !!

Today it promises to "Cool Down" to 105F.

The AC is already cranking out some cooler air.

Your pie is beautiful! But I can't imagine how you could bake it when it was so hot! Maybe a toaster oven? I sure hope it cools down there soon!

(Looks luscious)

that sure is a purty pie. looks almost good enough to eat, as my poppy use to say :)

I make a cherry pie today.

And I thought 100 was hot.
you two take care.

That pie looks wonderful. I have never had apricot pie. Peach, yes and I love it, so I'm sure I would love this.

That looks delicious!!! Your temps, however, are too much for me. Stay cool!

So much of the US is baking these days and it’s only June. Take care you two. I hope Dave is doing well.

I am so glad you took my advice and made a pie with the apricots, it looks absolutely gorgeous. I rarely see fresh apricots, I don't think the trees grow around here. Anyway I'll swap you a slice of that yummy pie for a jar of the strawberry jam that I made today! Deal?

oooops forgot to comment on your heat. If it was 110F at 6pm, how hot was it during the day? I've never been in heat like that. I was in 100F in Israel and also in Australia, but 110 is a bit much! I hope it cools down for you ASAP.

Apricot is my all time favorite pie!!! I bought some fresh apricots at Sam's but I am at the ranch so I won't be baking a pie.....unless I use Sherry's kitchen....now that's an idea!

I drooled over the "picture perfect pie," but the final image looked so scrumptious I bet my blood sugar spiked!! YUM.
