One of my readers recently wondered about my connection to The Purity Market. She asked, “Does your husband work there?”
If you click the About tab above, you will learn that I write about The Purity because I absolutely love the store.
This past Sunday, I was scrambling around looking for pinto beans, when I happened upon this display:Curious, I bought Turkish Apricots, brought them home, tossed the package into the garden, and took this lovely photo:I then took them into the house, opened the package, and conducted a taste test. I liked them. They lack the tangy bite that I find distasteful in dried apricots.They’re yummy, kind of like a fig, but without the dense fig taste.
The company that makes these is called Woodstock and they are Proud Supporters of American Farmland Trust.
Their display at The Purity has some other intriguing items that I plan to try.
Disclosure: I do not have any affiliation with Woodstock. However, when I featured Taaka Vodka last July, the company was so thrilled that they sent me a t-shirt. (I wonder what I’d look like in a Woodstock t-shirt?)
Wow! Did your blog go so viral that Taaka saw it??????
No, I contacted their marketing person and referred her to the blog post.
In a crazy coincidence, Turkish Apricot is my screen name a certain gay hook-up site.
I remember that being my pet name for you when we dated in high school.
