Fresh apricots make great snacks. They’re sweet and delicious, easy to eat, don’t bruise too easily, and have good nutritional value, too. They contain good amounts of Vitamins A and C, as well as the minerals potassium and copper.
Other than just eating fresh apricots for snacks, try adding slices to cereals and salads. I found some great dinner ideas with apricots to try, too!

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup
Angela’s Kitchen: Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Menu
Angela uses chopped, dried apricots to dress up baked goods and salads. She also keeps apricot jam on hand for a quick tasty glaze on chicken or pork. And, she’s sharing some great apricot recipes with us this week: Chicken with Apricot Sauce (fresh apricots and apricot preserves), Apricot Quinoa Pilaf (dried apricots), and Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin (apricot preserves). Add to those meals, Slow-Cooker Sloppy Joes and Rainbow Quiche, and you’ve got a great Menu Plan for the week!
