Our pitted, dried apricots are naturally sun-dried before being chopped into small chunks and sprinkled with rice flour to prevent sticking. Perfect for topping a tagine or putting in a fruity flapjack. 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 naturally sun dried without any sulphur treatment to produce a delicious, sweet light to dark brown fruit. Our dried apricots do not contain any additives or preservatives and are naturally darker in colour than apricots you will see in the supermarket which are a brighter (but more unnatural) yellow colour as they have been treated with sulphur to extend shelf life and make them more aesthetically pleasing. However we believe unsulphured, dark apricots are far tastier and have a delicious sweet caramel flavour. Apricots are an excellent source of vitamin and C and potassium and with no additives, preservatives or added salt and sugar 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. Also while sulphur dioxide is not actively added to our dried apricots, as they are produced on the same production as sulphured products we have to state that it may contain sulphites. Also, as our apricots are unsulphured we recommend you fully seal the bag or decant to an airtight container to ensure they do not dry out and stay moist and delicious!**
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. Dried apricots are also excellent for adding to your Moroccan themed tagine or simply snack straight from the bag – you can also soak the apricots in water beforehand to soften.
