MAY CONTAIN: PEANUTS, TREE NUTS, SOY
Our organic apricots are naturally sweet and chewy dried fruits that can be added to your trail mixes and muesli bars. Dreaming of a snack on the go? Dried apricots are convenient to transport. Unlike most industrially produced dried apricots, our organic apricots are not treated with sulfur dioxide to give them a vibrant color. Instead, our apricots have the natural dark amber color of a dried apricot without preservatives. Soft and tender on the inside but firm on the outside, our apricots have notes and aromas of nectarine and peach. The flavors are not diminished by the drying process, they are enhanced! Whether you grab a handful to snack on or to bake or use in baking, our delicious organic apricots are versatile!
HEALTH BENEFITS: A CONCENTRATE OF NUTRIENTS!
As the drying process removes the water from the apricots, some nutrients become more concentrated. Dried apricots are high in soluble fiber, which binds to fatty acids in your body to help eliminate them. Rich in potassium, 100g of dried apricots provide 21% of your recommended daily allowance (RDI). Dried apricots are also a great source of vitamin A, antioxidants and iron – replacing a snack or dessert with a handful of dried apricots can give you more of a benefit!
CULINARY TIP: ALL SEASON!
Eating seasonal products is easier said than done! The practical thing with dried apricots is their availability. Don’t sacrifice apricots in a recipe because they’re out of season! Replenish your organic dried apricots in lukewarm liquid for a few hours to hydrate and plump them. From lukewarm water to bourbon, the possibilities are only limited to your imagination. For even more flavor, add spices! Then cut your apricots into slices or cubes and add them to your breakfast cereals, salads, rice, pasta and desserts!
