Our pitted, dried apricots are naturally sun-dried before being chopped into small chunks, sulphured and sprinkled with rice flour to prevent sticking. Perfect for topping a tagine or putting in a fruity flapjack and already chopped for your convenience! They are grown in the Malatya region of Turkey which produce deliciously sweet and tasty apricots. The apricots are harvested by hand to avoid damage to the fruit and are then sun dried to produce a delicious, sweet light to dark orange fruit.
These apricots are treated with sulphur to give a soft and chewy texture and preserve their bright and vibrant colour. If you are looking for natural apricots with no preservatives please see our Organic Dried Chopped Apricots.
Apricots are an excellent source of vitamin and C and potassium and they are the perfect healthy snack!
**Please note: Chopped apricots may contain a small amount of stone in them which come from the apricot kernel/stone.**
We also have whole dried apricots which you can find here!
These delicious chopped dried apricots are perfect on top of muesli and porridge to add natural sweetness, or why not try making a delicious apricot jam. Chopped dried apricots are also excellent for adding to your Moroccan themed tagine or simply snack straight from the bag. Mix with our nuts and seeds for a yummy trail mix.
