ha, ha... I've always felt the same way about apricots--that they're far better cooked (or dried) than raw. And I've had them straight off the tree, so I'm not talking supermarket fruit here. I've never been to Buffalo, but if I ever get the chance I'll check out that fruit stand! When is apricot season in your neck of the woods?

I very much like the idea of pairing cake with cake. (And then putting the peaches and the apricot fool on top. Dinner? Dinner.)

I live in Buffalo (did you hear me squeal when I saw our fair city mentioned in this awesome post??) and I would LOVE to know where this fruit stand is, please!
Hey Nicholas, you probably mean Tom Tower (yet another WNY person chiming in here). If you get the chance, you should take the drive up into Niagara County and visit his farm market in Youngstown right outside Lewiston!
I'll get there! But for the seconds, you do want Dan Tower's stand -- across the market, halfway down from Tom's.
I don't know -- they're both in Youngstown, so I'm guessing... probably?
So weird, I've lived here almost 8 years (we live smack in the fruit belt along the Lake Ontario shoreline) and only ever knew of Tom. I have been duly educated.

Apricots, shoved under a broiler for five minutes while I make my coffee, paired with Greek yogurt and sliced peaches, were a favorite breakfast all summer long. I highly, highly recommend it. As you have here.
