    Food: The Way We Eat: Fuzzy Logic (August 3, 2008) 1/3 cup wildflower honey

    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    Pinch of salt

    Vanilla ice cream.

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Put the apricot halves, cut side up, in a pan just large enough to hold them in a single layer. Bake until tender and slightly dehydrated, about 1 hour.

    2. While the apricots cook, smash the reserved pits with a meat pounder. Pull out the seeds and discard the shells. Bring the honey, ˝ cup water and the seeds to a simmer and cook until reduced to ˝ cup. Stir in the lemon juice and salt. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl.

    3. Preheat the broiler. Spoon the glaze over the hot apricot halves and broil, basting with the glaze, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream. (They’re even better the next day.) Stored in their juices and refrigerated, they will keep for weeks. Serves 4.

    Thought for the day: Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away!
