Yesterday we found an apricot tree on campus, one whose fruit was ripe and hadn't been picked dry.
We shook out the fruit
picked it off the branches
Gathered it in a big bag
At home we stoned the fruit
Then cooked it up with some pekmez* that had gone solid.
We stored it in jars
And had some for breakfast.
*Pekmez is grapes molasses people make in Turkey. We bought a 3l bottle from a friend in Capadoccia last autumn, and had about a third left that had turned into some kind of brown syrupy sugar.
