Last year was a strange year in Mallorca in botanic terms. There were no apricots in Mallorca. On a tree that normally is laden with hundreds of apricots, there were only five or eight or twelve fruits a year ago. Or one, or none. So there wasn’t any home made apricot jam in our household, last year.
This year, all is back to normal. The prodigal apricot seems to have come back, all repentent. Apricot trees are laden again with plenty of sweet fruits, and my wife has been busy over the last few weeks making her muchly appreciated apricot jam, as well as baked apricot crumble and stewed apricot compote. Deliciously yummy.
