Description:

Turkish Apricots originally came from China, cuttings from the Apricot made their way from the Persian Empire to the Mediterranean and later in the hands of the Spanish explorers, the Apricot made its way to the New World. Apricots now thrive in most temperate climates and Turkey leads the way for producing some of the world’s finest Apricots. The Apricot is a small sweet fruit, smaller than a peach and golden orange in color. Apricots have a smooth oval pit that falls out easily when the fruit is halved. Our Turkish Apricots are sun-dried and are bright orange in color. Apricots are rich in Vitamin A and a healthy source of iron, calcium and beta-carotene. Dried Turkish Apricots offer the delicate, sweet taste of fresh Apricots, without the limited seasonality. Apricots can be used to flavor liqueurs and brandy and make tempting jams, jellies and chutneys. Excellent in baked goods and salads, scones, fruitcakes, baked desserts, pasta dishes, fruit salads and waffles. Use Turkish Apricots to add elegance to your favorite meal.
