Recipe Roundup: Sigona’s Blenheim Apricot White Balsamic

The heirloom Blenheim apricot is a local treasure in California’s Santa Clara Valley where it’s valued for its increasing rarity and prized for its incredible flavor.   

This balsamic tastes like summer in a bottle. It’s juicy, fragrant, sweet, slightly tart and simply mouthwatering! It’s great for marinades, glazes, vinaigrettes, fruit salad, caprese, desserts and more.

Olive oil pairing suggestions: Garlic, Navel orange fusion, Meyer lemon fusion, any non-infused Sigona’s Fresh Press extra virgin olive oil. 

It’s no secret that the very best apricots in the world are grown locally in the Santa Clara and San Benito counties, and the very best type is an heirloom variety called the Blenheim. These gems are highly treasured but are quickly becoming more and more rare.

Broiled Stone Fruit with Blenheim Apricot White Balsamic and Thyme over Vanilla Gelato with a Crumbled Cookie Topping
While stone fruits are perfect raw and out of hand, grilling or broiling them caramelizes their natural sugars, giving them a depth of flavor only heat and Mother Nature can create. Adding our Blenheim Apricot White Balsamic enhances the fruits syrupy-sweetness and will definitely please your summer dinner guests. Use any stone fruits you like; we think the color contrast of apricots and cherries is gorgeous. Plan for one apricot and 2 or three cherries per guest. Serves about 6.
