 SECRET FLAVORS
INSIDE THE APRICOT

Inside each apricot pit
lies an inner flavor
worth finding.

The noyaux,
or apricot kernel,
is a soft almond-like
center under the pit shell.
(With an overnight freezing,
a light strike with a hammer
releases the noyaux.)

The secret to sublime aromatics
in apricot jam is revealed
by wrapping these delicate pieces
in cheesecloth bags,
and cooking with the sliced fruit
on a medium-low flame.

An extraordinary aroma
awaits you.
