Tips

  • Once ripe, refrigerate in plastic bag.
  • To freeze apricots: (1) Wash, pit and halve or slice apricots; (2) Coat apricots with a solution made of 1/2 teaspoon of ascorbic acid for each 6 tablespoons of cold water to prevent darkening; (3) Add 1/2 cup sugar to each quart of fruit and stir until sugar is dissolved; (4) Place in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only - foods kept constantly frozen at 0℉ will keep safe indefinitely.
