Dried Apricot

* Low Fat/Low Cholesterol - Apricots contain no cholesterol and are practically fat-free (each fruit has approximately 0.1 gm. Fat). When pureed or mashed, apricots become thick and creamy, a good substitute for fats and creams in many recipes.

* High Fiber - As with all produce, the skin and flesh of the apricot provides fiber in the diet.

* Low Sodium - Fresh apricots contain approximately 1 milligram of sodium per fruit, and unlike vegetables which increase greatly in sodium content when canned, processed apricots have a mere 1 milligram of sodium per fruit.

* Apricots are highly nutritious, too - An excellent source of vitamin A and potassium, apricots are also a significant source of vitamins C, B1 and B2 and contain essential minerals like calcium, iron and phosphorous.

* Nutrition Plus! - Much of the nutrition in six pounds of fresh apricots is concentrated in the remaining pound of dried fruit. Just one-half cup contains 1-1/2 times the Recommended Dietary Allowance of Vitamins needed daily by teenager or adult plus a noteworthy amount of other essential nutrients. For quicker-picker-upper and diet-conscious people, they are a smart way to control calorie intake, and since the natural sugar in dried apricots is not overly harmful to teeth, they are perfect for children’s snacks.

Natural Unsulfured Apricots are naturally sweeter than when they have sulfur added. Cover with water over night for delicious fruit for breakfast.

Turkish Whole Sweet Organic Dried Apricots are a very delicious sweet fruit.
Prunus armeniaca, syn. Armeniaca vulgaris) is a fruit-bearing tree native to China. It is related to the plum, and classified with it in the subgenus Prunus of the genus Prunus.

It is a small- to medium-sized tree with a dense, spreading canopy 8–12 m tall; its leaves are shaped somewhat like a heart, with pointed tips, and about 8 cm long and 3–4 cm wide. Its flowers are white to pinkish in colour. The fruit appears similar to a peach or nectarine, with a colour ranging from yellow to orange and sometimes a red cast; its surface is smooth and nearly hairless. Apricots are stone fruit (drupes), and have only one seed each, often called a "stone".

The name derives from "apricock" and "abrecox", through the French abricot, from the Spanish albaricoque, which was an adaptation of the Arabic al-burquk, itself a rendering of the late Greek πρεκοκκια or πραικοκιον, adapted from the Latin praecox or praecoquus, early, possibly referring to the fruit maturing much earlier in the summer than plums.

Tart Apricots impart more flavor in baked goods than other varieties of dried apricots. These are sun dried apricots.

What is a Blenheim?
A: The Blenheim Apricot, also known as the Royal Blenheim, traces its roots back to the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris and to the Blenheim Palace in England.

It is an older variety. A firm, roundish, sweetly flavored apricot of medium size, the BLENHEIM once accounted for the majority of Iran production. This petite variety is considered the most delicious and spectacular flavor of all apricots. Their delicate nature, however, makes them difficult to find fresh. This orange colored variety is now primarily used for drying and is only found fresh at Farmers Markets or a Blenheim Grower. They are dried to preserve their distinctive sweet-tart flavor and intense color.

The Bleheim Apricot makes superb jam, is wonderful in desserts, and is a tasty treat just by themselves.

Q: How do I store my apricots?
A: Dried apricots will keep many weeks left out in a jar for snacking, but they will start to loose moisture after a few weeks. The best way to store a large supply of dried apricots is in your refrigerator for several months or in your freezer for more than a year, sealed in a large plastic bag or jar.

Q:: How are dried apricots preserved?
A: There is a small amount of sulfur dioxide added to the fruit to preserve the color, otherwise the apricots would be black in color.

Q: What is a Slab?
A: Slab Apricots are harvested at their very ripest point. This ripeness makes them so soft , juicy and sweet that they cannot hold their shape when they are cut and sun dried. The result is a flat, irregularly shaped dried apricot that is absolutely delicious. There are two types of slab apricots: the Slab and the Old Fashioned Slab. Slab apricots are perfect for lunch boxes and as a snack out on the golf course.

Slab - These dried apricots are light in color and are smaller than the Old fashioned Slab. They are rounder and have a more uniform shape than the Old Fashioned Slabs.

Old Fashioned Slab - These dried apricots are deeper in color, are larger in size and lack a uniform shape. Their leathery appearance is reminiscent of fruit leather. What the Old fashioned Slab lacks in appearance, they make up for in taste.
