Several days ago, I opened a can of pineapple in chunks and ate these for dessert. It is yummier because it was cooled inside the fridge for this hot temperature that we have here. Last night, I reminded my son to put cans of fruits in the freezer. So this noon, I took the cold can of apricots and opened it. The fruits were already having ice and the syrup hardened. I opened the can and put it in a bowl and kept it inside the fridge. After our lunch, I told my son to bring the bowl of apricots out. I did not add evaporated milk already because it is sweet. Although fresh fruits are better, the market and the grocery stores are so far from our house so we resorted to the cans of fruits sent in package by my brother from UK. The expiry dates are a couple of years ahead, so it is safe for us to eat the fruits. I haven’t seen an apricot tree, but I am happy I know the taste already,since a long time ago.

@ridingbet The apricot is a small tree around 3 - maximum 3.5 meters high. The apricots need cold winters but sunny days from mid-Spring. The origin of apricot is in Armenia, it is a cold country.

my big brother sent us many canned fruits because they were on sale in a supermarket in UK, and we appreciate him for that. the canned fruits are good to eat after putting them in the freezer, like this apricots in the can.

@nela13 indeed. Now it is so hot and no winds blowing. I might have a heatstroke if I am outside the house. A cool snacks can make me feel relaxed and cool.

I buy a bunch of my fruit in cans as well. this is a good idea to put it in the fridge. I do that with my Applesauce in a cup before I eat it at work. It does taste better cold.

Yes. Even when we have our meals I get rice earlier and let it stand for a while. I can't bear eating hot rice in this hot climate.

Hello po. Are those apricots the peaches we know of? I would like to have some of those.

good morning hija. no, the apricots are smaller than the peaches. i believe the apricots' color is different from the peaches. apricots are a little orange in color, while peaches are bigger and yellowish. it is also nice to mix them in one bowl.

@ridingbet When it is starting to get yellow colour and still firm, that's when we pick them .. They would be crunchy and really nice to eat than when they are fully ripe ..

@epiffanie really? do they taste like pears or apples? the cool desserts we have are canned, so i cannot determine if they are soft or hard when prepared and packed.

indeed, and we can even make the iced-cold fruit salad with just an addition of evaporated milk and some sugar, plus crushed ice.

@id_peace no it isn't. maybe your evaporated milk is made like what you stated here, but not our milk here.

the big mangoes that were green 2 wks ago are green now. so what mother did was scoop each cheek out with a big serving spoon, put them in resealable plastic bags then freeze them.

I guess it is a good solution if you stay so far away from a fruit market.

yes. the only fruits sold in a nearby flea market are bananas and over-ripe mangoes.
