Dried apricots are very successful at retaining and preserving their sweet flavour. In Latin apricot means “precocious,” named because it ripens earlier in the season than most other fruits. One cup of dried apricots provides 94% of your body’s daily need for Vitamin A and 19% of its iron. Dried apricots also contain potassium and antioxidants and have been known to lower cholesterol and improve digestion. Dried apricots are fat-free, low in calories & high in flavour!
