White Apricot Sorbet with Honeysuckle for #SundaySupper

White Apricot (Angelcot) Sorbet with Honeysuckle

Raise your hand if you are sweating it out right now?! San Diego has been hit with unusual humidity this time of year, making my spoiled kids ask, “Why is it so sticky?” It’s not hot enough to run the a/c (don’t lynch me for saying that), but the days are definitely heating up. Why all this weather talk? Well, today’s #SundaySupper theme is Beat the Heat. And why not beat the heat with some dreamy apricot sorbet made with angelcots?

Frieda’s Produce was kind enough to send me some beautiful angelcots to sample. The Angelcot is a white apricot hybrid of Moroccan and Iranian apricots. And of course, with my middle-eastern background, my curiosity was tickled to try out these exotic apricots.

They are sweet, juicy and fragrant with the texture similar to a nectarine. You can find them right now at your local Ralph’s Supermarket. They are also delicate and didn’t have the most comfortable journey in the mail to my house. But, when life gives you battered apricots, what do you do? Make apricot sorbet!

I am still on my honey kick here in my kitchen, so this sorbet is sweetened with honey, not sugar. And while I was in my garden, watering my sad tomato plants and thinking about my apricot sorbet, I saw my kids sucking on honeysuckle blossoms that had grown over our fence from my  neighbor’s yard. The blossoms reminded me of my angelcots and I decided they would go in my apricot sorbet, as well.

The result is a fragrant, sweet and creamy apricot sorbet. A perfect way to beat the heat and enjoy the bounties of summer!

    This is such a beautiful sorbet! Love the idea of honeysuckle!

  4. Okay that is pretty! I’ve only ever used honeysuckle in perfuming so I am intrigued as to the taste.

  5. Just gorgeous! I’ve never seen an angelcot before – so intrigued. I would definitely love to cool down with some of this delicate sorbet.

  6. I’ve never tried white apricots but this recipe sounds incredibly delicious! Surely going to go and look for white apricots in the market tomorrow! :)

  7. I adore angelcots (discovered them last summer) and the honeysuckle sounds just perfect here. Love your photos, Laura!

    This sorbet really does sound refreshing. I have never heard of white apricots but it sounds delicious and it is always fun to find something new. I’m really going for the honeysuckle too.

  11. Your photos are amazing! I’ve never heard of angelcots before … I’ll look for them next time I’m in civilization :)

  12. This looks yummy! Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Great idea! I love the smell of honeysuckles! I taught my kids to squeeze the drop of nectar out for a treat!

  14. Amazing fruit, new to me – pinning your photo – lovely! Off to Ralph’s…

  15. Gorgeous ice cream! I love honey and though never tasted angelcots can well imagine this with white peaches. The addition of honeysuckle is so great!

    Hi! I knew, when I saw the title of your post for this week, that this would be a special recipe. Your photos are gorgeous, and I’m going to look for this fruit here in Maryland!

  17. What delightful flavors you have here — love this apricot sorbet! Thanks for sharing your Sunday Supper!

  18. It’s been so hot here in St. Louis our poor air conditioner has rarely been off for the last several weeks. Not very humid, though, which is unusual for here – usually it’s a steam bath. Anyway, nice recipe. Angelcots are new to me, and I’ve never cooked with honeysuckle. But I could go for something cool and refreshing, and this looks super. Thank you.

  19. Gorgeous photos. I totally wish I lived near you! I would be inviting myself over for dessert on Sundays!

  20. That looks wonderful even if it is cold here. I just used both honey and apricots in my latest granola bars but no honeysuckle. I love your photos, as always.

  21. Interesting use of what you had available. I’ve sucked about a thousand honeysuckles in my life, but never considered cooking with them. Now I have something new to try. :)

  22. This is absolutely stunning! And what a wonderful way to cool off in this heat!

    Beautiful sorbet! Such a wonderful, happy color! And one more exotic ingredient :-). I recently bought something called plumcot, which is supposed to be a hybrid of plum and apricot. It looked like an apricot and tasted like a plum. Now I will be on the lookout for these Angelcots. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

  24. Your sorbet is gorgeous! And, I must hunt down those angelcots-yum. Today we had a nice breeze at our house, but you’re right, it has been a bit “sticky” lately. This is definitely going on k summer dessert list to make!

  25. Oh wow Laura! This looks phenomenal! I love apricot and have been eating as it is, but I was thinking I should make ice cream/sorbet out of it. I’ve never used honeysuckle before and I’d love to try this sorbet!

  26. Kim Bee at #

    This is simply stunning. Your photos are breathtaking.

  27. Renee at #

    Beautiful! Love the photography and the idea for the flavors, so cool. I’ll have two, please. :)

  28. So many delicious sorbets and ice creams this week! I want them all right now :)

  29. LOVE this! There’s a place where I walk/run near my house, and I always take a little detour down this one path just so I can smell the honeysuckle. It’s one of my favorite summer fragrances. And this dessert is, of course, just stunning! Congrats!

    that sounds so delicious!

  32. What a stunning sorbet, and I bet it tastes amazing!
