Now in the Co-op: Nectacots! A cross between nectarines and apricots, they look like a big round apricot, and the flesh has the texture of a nectarine.
They're juicy, sweet-tart, and wonderful. They combine deliciously with vanilla, almond, fresh lemon, basil, mint, ginger, black pepper, or cardamom. Or let your imagination guide you! We love these other flavor pairing ideas for stone fruit, too.
Look for nectacots and other stone fruit from Collins Family Orchards--we'll get it as it's available!
