Heavenly apricot pie

by | Aug 1, 2014 | Desserts

Sweet. Fragrant. Beautiful. These three words come to my mind when we are talking about apricot. It’s one of the most valueable and healthy fruits. It’s perhaps the best source of vitamin A, beside this it’s rich of vitamin C, beta carotene and sulfur.

According to the legend apricot is the secret of long life. Thanks to the fruit’s versatility you can find thousands of recipes usign apricot. Here is my favorite one, summer is unimaginable to me without this pie.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
