Apricot Confection with Pistachios

These are from Mansoura Middle Eastern Bakery, 515 King's Highway Brooklyn. The apricot paste is face-scrunchingly sour and centrifugal with fruitiness. The blanched pistachios are very fresh and vivid. The sweetness and sourness of this candy somehow stay completely separate, not melding into any recognizable sweet-and-sour combination. A real Steeplechase ride for the palate.

Hey - great minds think alike! :) Look at these apricot upside-down mini cakes that I made 2 weeks ago - garnished with pistachios! http://www.cooksister.com/2008/05/individual-apricot-upside-down-cakes.html
