Water content: 86%
1kg prepared fresh = approximately 140g dried
Apricots (firm, ripe, tasty fruit)
Lemon juice
Prepare fruit.
Wash apricots, halve and discard stones. Leave in halves or slice into wedges or 5mm (1/4 inch) slices or dice if desired. Weigh prepared fruit.
Dip fruit.
Place prepared apricots into a bowl of acidified water (20% lemon juice, 80% water) and stir gently to cover fruit and prevent oxidisation.
Dry fruit.
Dry on fruit setting until pliable, around 14-20 hours. Cool fruit and check weight (to confirm water content) and check there is no moisture present.
  • If leaving apricots in halves, press middle inwards to make the fruit as flat as possible

  • Black pepper
  • Cardamom
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Vanilla
  • Almonds
