National Apricot Day - January 9th
January 9th is Apricot Day! Apricots may have originated in Armenia, but there is evidence to suggest that both China and India as the first place it was cultivated.
Something else I did not know until now: Amaretto liqueur, known for an almond flavor, is not necessarily made with almonds, but from the edible apricot seeds from cultivars grown around the Mediterranean.
