Premium Dried Apricots

500 grams

The fresh summer fruits of the apricot tree with a sunshiny colour of yellow-orange are dehydrated into dried fruits that one can easily get hold of any season of the year, not just summer. They are delicious with a moist texture, chewy and sweet.

This dried variety has reduced water content to prolong its shelf life, making it less susceptible to bacteria that could degrade it.


How to Serve:

Dried apricots can be eaten on their own as a fruit portion after a meal, as a snack, or as an add-on for breakfast goodies such as cereals or dairy. They pair well with cooked vegetables, in gratins, in sandwiches, in any sweet and savory recipe.
