Honeyed Apricots and French Toast

My family is big on honey. Especially local, raw honey. I decided to try tartelette's Honey apricots (Her pictures are stunning and far better than mine.). I have no idea why, because 1. I don't really like apricots, and 2. The apricots we had were sour.

 They were not my favorite, but my mom liked them so it was all good. Probably if they had been riper, they would have been tastier.

The honey was delicious though. It had a really nice apricot flavor.

And since I can't just eat apricots for breakfast, I made french toast.
I usually eat my french toast with syrup, jam, or powdered sugar but french toast with honey is incredible. I feel like I've never tried it with honey before, but I know I have. Maybe it was the apricotness.

I'm not quite sure of the ratio of eggs to milk but I used Challah bread. But here's the recipe for the apricots:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • six apricots, cut in half, pit removed
  • 1/3 cup honey
Melt the butter in a pan until it starts to sizzle, put in the apricots, cut side down, cook for 2 minutes, flip and cook for another 2 minutes. remove them from pan and place on a serving plate. Add honey to the hot pan and swirl around until hot. Pour over apricots and serve.
