Botanical Name: Prunus Armeniaca
Certified Organic
Country of Origin: Turkey
Production: These unsulfured apricots are harvested when fully ripe, then pitted and traditionally dried in the sun, a process that usually takes between 3 and 4 days.
It is disputed whether apricots originated in China or Armenia before Persian traders discovered the fruit and introduced it as a trading asset throughout the silk road. Cultivated in many Middle Eastern countries, they were especially coveted in the Russian, Ottoman, and Persian empires, and were introduced to the Americas by Spanish conquistadors. Turkey is today’s leading producer of dried apricots.
Qualities: Dried apricots are a good source of antioxidants (immune system support) vitamin A (promoting healthy vision) and iron (beneficial for anemia). Their high fiber content (both fresh and dried) in conjunction with fat-soluble retinol (vitamin A) helps with the absorption of nutrients while cleansing the intestines and feeding our microbiome. Apricots may also assist in reducing cholesterol and balance electrolytes due to their high potassium content.
Common Use: Perfect for trail and nut mixes or alone as a snack. A great way to utilize dried apricots is in these tasty no-bake breakfast/granola bars:
  1.   1 ½ cups quick oats (gluten free oats, if desired) - add to a large bowl
  2.   ¼ cup almonds - pulse in food processor then add to bowl with oats
  3.   ¼ cup cashews - pulse in food processor then add to bowl with oats
  4.   1 cup pitted dates, packed - pulse in food processor then add to bowl with oats
  5.   1 tsp cinnamon - add to bowl with oats etc.
  6.   ½ tsp sea salt - add to bowl with oats etc.
  7.   ½ cup dried apricots, diced - or whole apricots cut into quarters and added to bowl with oats etc.
  8.   ¼ cup dark chocolate chips - add to bowl with oats etc.
  9.   ¼ cup almond butter - heat over low heat and add to bowl with rest of ingredients and mix well
  10.   ¼ cup + 1 tbsp maple syrup - heat over low heat and add to bowl with rest of ingredients and mix well

Line an 8×8 baking pan with wax paper and press the mixture into the pan until it’s flat and evenly distributed. Place in the fridge for at least 60 minutes. Remove from the fridge and chop into 8-10 bars. Enjoy!

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, and dark area in a sealed bag or container.

Excellent!

As usual, fast shipping and the apricots are the best! Very fresh, plump and not dried out. Couldn't ask for a better supplier.

An wonderful exotic treat!

These are so incredibly soft and fresh.. with just a touch of chewiness to them. Just a few are needed to keep me regular, so I mix them with an assortment of OM dried fruit, like mulberries, figs, goji berries and ginger for a tasty pick me up throughout the day. OM has the most impressive variety of health oriented foods I've ever come across! So very happy to have found "my go to place" so I can maintain my health and energy level every day!
