By dehydrating apricots when they are plentiful, you can have
delicious apricot jam, apricot compote, pies, sauces ... on hand, year
'round in addition to your other dehydrated fruit!
Apricots have a lovely velvety skin, smell delicious, and are a fantastic source of
vitamin A, followed by vitamin C, and vitamin E, with trace amounts of
Folate, Choline, vitamin K, Niacin and vitamin B6. Apricots contain these minerals: Potassium, Phosphorus, Calcium,
Magnesium, with trace amounts of Iron, Zinc, Selenium, Copper and
Manganese. Apricots also have Omega-6 fatty acids.
Thankfully they are readily available frozen, so this is the easy way to create your own private stock when fresh apricots are not available!
