how to dry apricots

Healthy, sweet snacks available all year.

Drying apricots in the Breeze Food Dehydrator is a great way to keep the flavours of summer alive all year. Dried apricots make a lovely, sweet, chewy snack perfect for packing into school lunch boxes, your handbag or desk draw. Homemade dehydrated apricot is also delicious added to yogurt, homemade cereal, muesli bars, or your favourite muffins.

Store-bought dried apricots, the ones that are bright orange and tender, have been treated with preservatives to retain the colour and keep them soft. Without sulphates, apricots naturally lose their lovely intense orange colour as the moisture leaves the fruit. Even with a pre-treatment, homemade dehydrated apricots will be dryer and darker in colour. Good news - the process of dehydration, intensifies the sweetness making the homemade variety burst with flavour.
