Dried apricots at home: TOP 3 best recipes

How to take a piece of delicious sweet orange summer with you in winter? The answer is simple – prepare your own dried apricots and enjoy the natural summer fruit in the cold. And the recipes for summer sweets will tell you MustHub.

You may object that it is easier to buy dried apricots ready-made. But after all, a dish made with your own hands is always tastier, especially if you also have apricots from your own garden. And although the appearance of homemade dried apricots is inferior to store-bought ones, but you will be sure that there are no harmful additives in your product.

Dried apricots can be made in the oven or dried directly on the street, if the hot sunny weather sets in. The preparatory stage for fruit in all recipes is the same:

  • To prepare homemade dried apricots, choose mature apricots, which easily separate the stone.
  • Wash the fruits thoroughly, preferably even with a brush.
  • Cut the apricots in half and remove the seeds.
