Tarragon Whispered Sweet Almond Apricot Fruit Leather ~ Gourmet Edition ~

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Apricots and tarragon easily cross the borders between sweet and savory dishes. Tarragon contains notes of citrus and anise, both of which blend well with apricots.  Be sure to use ripe apricots when making the leather, the sweetness offsets their mouth-puckering tanginess and add a great complexity to the recipe.  That tangy flavour allows apricots to mix equally well into sweet or savoury dishes, that is what brought me to using tarragon.

Tarragon is a fairly new spice to me. It wasn’t to long ago that I was deathly afraid of the spice drawer.  Salt, pepper and cinnamon… those were my go-to spices.  And to be frank about it, some spices still make me weak in the knees when I pass them in the grocery isle.  I am a work in progress and I can see that I am growing bolder and bolder with each new experience in the kitchen.   I hope you don’t mind if I take a few minutes to share some of the interesting facts that I have learned about tarragon.  Perhaps you too have spice phobias and if so, I offer you my hand and we shall over-come this together!
