They are a great treat that is sweet and full of flavor. Apricots have been used in many cultures as a staple in cooking, drinks and medicine for centuries.
Mascarpone is an Italian cheese made from cream. It is milky colored and spreads easily. Sometimes mascarpone is used instead of butter or cheese.
Pistachios are just darn good! They are a nut from the cashew family that grows on trees. When they ripen the shells turn from green to a creamy color and split open with an audible pop. The meat of the pistachio is green and used as an ingredient in many wonderful foods.
