Production & Sourcing
Dried Apricot Chunks are crafted through a meticulous process that begins with the selection of ripe apricots. The apricots are washed, pitted, and then cut into bite-sized chunks. These chunks are carefully laid out in a single layer and subjected to a drying process, which removes the majority of the fruit’s moisture while preserving its natural sweetness and flavor. The drying process can be achieved through sun drying or using commercial dehydrators.
