Description:

Temporarily Unavailable... 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 in 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.

Ingredient Statement:

Apricots, sulfur dioxide(to maintain color), potassium sorbate. Although apricots have been pitted, they may contain the occasional pit.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

There is no preparation needed for dried fruit.  If used in baking, you may want to rehydrate.  To rehydrate dried fruit, pour boiling water over the fruit and let sit covered for 20 minutes. Drain well before using it.
