Sundried apricots

Apricots in solar drierLast year we had 2 apricots. While this years pickings were still on the light side (about 5kg) it’s enough to call a harvest. At 5 years old our Fitzroy Apricot is still a young ‘un; so it’ll improve each passing year. Eating fresh picked apricots, still warm from the sun is simply heavenly. And when we could eat no more for fear of bodily repercussion we halved the rest and laid them in the solar drier (how exciting is that – homegrown dried apricots!) They end up a dull brown colour, but the taste is explosive! (Whatever do they do to commercial dried fruit to keep them bright orange?)
