Step by step recipe

1Prepare 500 g apricots, then place on a baking sheet.Dried apricots : etape 25
2You can put a few grains of vanilla in the centre of each half if you like, but this is not essential.Dried apricots : etape 25
3Leave to dry in the oven at 194°F (90°C) for 6 hours.

This time is just for guidance, as it will depend on the ripeness of your apricots and could take longer (8 hours, for instance). Do check after this time to see how well they have dried.

Remarks

It is important to use very ripe apricots, or the drying will bring out any tartness.
You can also sprinkle the apricots with caster sugar before they go in the oven, but they will no longer have that natural dried apricot flavour.
Those fortunate enough to have a proper bread oven can make use of the residual heat after baking bread. Put the apricots in at 194°F (90°C) and leave for 8 to 10 hours.
