Dried apricots are obtained from dying the apricot fruits. The process includes desiccating the water content of the fruits without harming or decreasing their intuitive value. Dried apricots, like their fresh fruits, are substations of nutrition. They contain minerals, fiber, vitamins, and vital phytochemicals. They also hold great texture and are recognized for their healing benefits.

Tasting notes

Sometimes though dried fruits look charming, they have a sour flavor and don’t have the sweet apricot smell. It means that the fruits used were not ripe enough. But our dried apricot is as sweet as the fresh ones. Only immature dried apricots will have a sour flavor. The sweeter the fruit, the better it is.

Dried apricot has a unique nectarous taste with a zing of tartness, which complements rich, full flavors such as black pepper, almond, caramel, ginger, and hazelnut.

  • They have a light, sweet fruit flavor with a nice, smooth texture.
  • Unsweetened, No added sugar
  • All-natural, no added color

Serving suggestions

Dried apricots are an excellent snack, but you can also use them in sandwiches and salsas.

Here are three delicious serving suggestions for apricots.

  • Try them in a sandwich where you would usually use tomatoes.
  • For a healthy jam, cook dried apricots with some apple juice until very smooth and tender, then purée—no additional sweetening is needed.
  • For a quick salsa: Mix chopped apricots with lime juice, chili peppers, diced onion, and ground cumin. Serve alongside fish or chicken.

 

How Dates are harvested

The ripening phase of the fruit may extend over three weeks for some cultivars so that gathering apricots may cross this time frame. You’ll know when to pick apricots visually once the fruits turn from green to yellowish-orange in color and feel somewhat softened, but still firm to the touch.

 

Storage

Dried apricots should be kept in the refrigerator. If stored at temperatures above 75 F., it would become hard, dark in color, and will drop its nutrient value. They can be stored no more than one month at room temperature, but up to 6 months in the freezer or refrigerator.

 

Allergy

Dried apricots are very nutritious but can cause medical difficulties for people with an allergy to the fruit. Most people with an allergy to apricots have other fruit and pollen allergies, particularly to birch pollen. But some reactions to apricots are not allergic but represent a food intolerance to apricots.

So far, nobody has reported getting ill or having an allergic reaction to the dried apricots, the FDA stated.
