Sun-Dried Turkish Apricots

These plump-perfect dried apricots are almost as soft and succulent as the fresh fruit, and have the same delicate flavor that's been kissed by the Mediterranean sun.

Dubbed "the precocious ones" by the ancient Romans, who were amazed by the fruit's rapid ripening, and as "the golden eggs of the sun" by the Greeks, for their fich color and oval shape, apricots have quite a worldwide following. They also have a well-traveled history dating back to 2,000 B.C., when they were cultivated in China and then traded along the Silk Route to the Middle East. Alexander the Great carried them to Europe and the Spanish brought them to the New World. Today apricots are grown in many different locations, but the ones from Turkey and California are considered the cream of the crop.

Turkish apricots are particularly prized for being milder and slightly sweeter than their California-grown counterparts (which are terrifically tangy in their own right), making them a versatile ingredient in cooking. They're also softer and more succulent, for a decidedly different kind of snacking sensation. These are dried in the Mediterranean sun, just like they've been doing for thousands of years-drying being the oldest form of food preservation, and a natural way to concentrate the nutrients for snacks with substance to take on long journeys. They'll fuel all your feats, too.
