It's a dried apricot, silly! Why? What did you think it was?
Sadly, I've never been a fan of apricots. I really should be, though, because apricots are on the list of World's Healthiest Foods.
Perhaps I'll take this on as a challenge. I've already conquered my hatred of tea, thanks to delicious ginger tea, and it's only June! I think I will. I think I'll focus on the dreaded apricot and see if I can't force myself to like it by the end of 2010!
