"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

First used this recipe for a Spring Fling event, but ever since then, people have asked for these simple appetizers. My daughter-in-law is thrilled to do anything for me EXCEPT fill the apricots!
