Apricots and Almonds Jam
Legend tells us that apricot trees were just an ornamental plant intended to be cut down for its wood, like any other tree that couldn’t produce fruits. One day, a young girl, who was very fond of the plant, cried so much for an entire night under its branches that fruits – the ones we now call apricots – started growing from her tears.
Another legend, a Greek one, tells us the story of Acamas, who was forced to leave his beloved Phyllis to fight in the Trojan War. Phyllis waited for him for ten long years, but then, resigned at the thought that he would never return, she died of a broken heart. However, the goddess Athena, moved by this love story, turned Phyllis’ remains into a wonderful almond tree. When Acamas finally returned to her, he embraced the tree, which started blooming with wonderful white flowers.
Apricot Almond jam is the epitome of poetry and warm seasons. Apricots are a typical summer fruit and almonds are seeds of a tree whose blooms symbolise the end of the winter season.
They are nourishing foods with multiple beneficial properties and they share legendary origins. But what is legendary is also the taste that comes about from their pairing.
This jam is perfect with cheese, bread, or as a filling for unforgettable pies.
