About Our Bulk Sulfured Apricots
Apricots have been cultivated in the central regions of Asia and have been an important part of human history for thousands of years. Dried Turkish apricots, due to their ability to keep well in the times predating the refrigerator, were an important trading good on the Silk Road. It wasn’t until the 1900s CE that apricots became prevalent and readily available in the Western World.
These bulk sulfured apricots are related botanically to peaches and nectarines.
- Moist, plump, and chewy, they are perfect as a healthy alternative to other sweet snacks like candies or chocolates.
- Dried Apricots also find their home in many different types of baked goods.
- They also pair well with gourds in many different cuisines.
Bulk Sulfured Apricots will keep in the refrigerator or the pantry for 6 to 12 months. Freezing them will increase their shelf life to on average about 18 months. For hot or humid environments, we strongly recommend refrigerating your dried apricots.
Our apricots, like many dried fruits, are rich in both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. They are rich in essential minerals such as magnesium and potassium. As their orange color may indicate, Turkish Apricots contain high levels of beta-carotenes. They also contain high levels of iron, making apricots one of the healthiest snacks around.
Sulfur dioxide is predominantly in dried fruits and vegetables as well as soft drinks (and alcoholic beverages like wine). It’s a preservative that can cover apricots to extend shelf life and kill bacteria. Since it maintains color, it’s also often used in dried fruits that are light in color. These include golden raisins, peaches, apples, pineapple, papaya, mango, and these dried apricots to keep them from turning brown.
If you are looking for the organic version of our apricots, without the Sulfur Dioxide, we sell those as well. You can find our bulk organic apricots here.
