Just back from the farmers market. Still fairly sparse up here, but it was so good to be walking among all those people with dirt under their fingernails. I was hoping for sour cherries. Alas, I'll have to wait until next week. But the apricots and sugar snaps are lovely, and I got some great local liverwurst and kale. Dinner tonight: kale salad, grilled steak, braised potatoes and apricot crisp. (I know, I know, but I can't get enough apricots when they're in season.)

  • Nothing better than June apricots and I am also planning to make something with the stash that I picked up at the Marin Farmer’s market on Thursday. The original idea was to make the recipe in Comfort Me with Apples for apricot pie but if you have a recommended recipe for crisp, please do note which one it is. Cheers !

    Nancy – I basically just make the apricot pie in the book without a crust. The first time I did it because friends showed up at the last minute and I had no time to make pie crust. But after a while I’ve realized that I like it just as well. And there is no easier dessert!
