Sometimes a color is so vibrant, it speaks for itself. That's exactly the case with's Apricot Jam. It's golden and sunshiney -- the essence of summertime, no frills necessary. All it takes is a white background, a glass jar, and a delicate serving knife to show off the jam's pure brightness. 

And gorgeous jam comes from gorgeous fruit. With a little help from light and shadow, literally highlights the heart-shaped, soft-yellow apricots. They're so beautiful we want to pick one up and sink our teeth in -- but we wouldn't dare ruin this perfectly minimalist shot.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.
