(The following verse is based on the article "Forgotten fruit" in today's Chicago Tribune's 'Good Eating' section.)
A stone fruit we don't eat a lot
Is the forgotten apricot.
In supermarkets we will reach
For every cherry, plum, or peach
But seldom do we save a spot
In diets for the apricot.
Those chefs who think this rather queer
Say apricots look good this year.
They're healthy, sweet, and versatile
In salads, smoked, or on the grill.
So while the days are long and hot
Let's not forget the apricot.
