The whole reason I got a dehydrator was to do apricots. The season just isn’t long enough to eat as many as I’d like in their off-the-tree form. Though I always give it my best effort.Another bonus is that I can make sure it’s ‘clean fruit’ by briefly soaking them in cold water with a splash of apple cider vinegar. This [supposedly] removes any nasty residues, i.e. sprays.Then, before slicing for the dehydrator, I let them air dry outside. I sit next to them and read a while. They’re lovely companions. So quiet.Slice, spread on trays and pop into the dehydrator…When done, pack them up, suck out all the air [a very nifty gadget exists for this] and that’s it. All that’s left is to wait for winter when all this July goodness becomes an ingredient for December granola festivals.
