9 January is Apricot Day! Did you know South Africa is the largest exporter of canned apricots in the world? And let me spark your feeling of nostalgia – do you remember the adorable Koo apricot jam advert of the 1990s? “Koo- The best you can do!” Most apricots in South Africa are grown in the Western Cape. The mediterranean climate of hot dry summers and cold wet winters make it the best place for apricot agriculture.
Following our theme for this month of making more homemade products, like days gone by, we thought we’d share some recipes to preserve this sweet golden summer fruit to enjoy all year round.
