Honeyville Freeze Dried Apricots are produced in a process where moisture is removed from the product using a very low temperature and a vacuum. Only about 3 percent moisture remains in the product at the time of packaging. The end product weight is reduced by over 90 percent, while the volume stays the same. This remarkable process concentrates the fresh taste, natural color, and texture of apricots.
When rehydrated, the product will absorb the liquid and resemble fresh apricots once again. The taste is great, and the nutritional value is preserved. Freeze drying provides natural and additive free fruits to be stored effectively for long periods of time. Honeyville Freeze Dried Apricots are an ideal product for long term food storage and emergency preparedness.
Shelf-Life: Freeze Dried Apricots will store for 5 to 10 years in a sealed #10 can (oxygen absorber included) under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place).
Instructions: Add 3 parts water to 1 part apricot. Allow Freeze Dried Apricots to hydrate for about 20 minutes or until fully rehydrated.
