As part of an industrial agreement with the voices in my head I agreed to write a post on Bulgarian Apricot preserve. Here it is. I have to confess that researching this one was a pain. Its hard to find info on Apricot preserve made in Bulgaria. Even a search on http://www.google.bg wasn’t a big help.
Preserving fruit for winter is an ancient european tradition. The Bulgarians are no exception and they seem to make a variety of jams and preserves. Its just that Apricots doesn’t seem to be among them. However there seems to be a concerted effort made to grow apricots in Bulgaria. I wish them luck.
I did find a website of a Bulgarian company that carries on this tradition into the 21st by selling its fruit preserve on the internet. But lost the URL 😦 Inexcusable yes, and I’m sure my gruel rations will be halved.
I havn’t had the chance to sample the exotic delights of Bulgarian Apricot preserve. I am doubtful that preserved fruit from Bulgaria ever makes it to Sri Lanka. Though the flow of international trade has currents that are not obvious. As a long standing appreciator of apricots and other fruits, I can only assume that it must be delicious.
I think I’m off the hook now and “normal” neural activity might resume (assuming there ever was such a thing). At least the voice are happy and are singing “Danno Budunge” to the accompaniment of a Ukulele as I type.
