Dehydrated Apricots[1]Apricots are a delicious and sweet item you can easily dehydrate and preserve in order to add to your prepper collection. They go fantastic as just snacks all on their own, but they can also be used for baking, in trail mixes, or to dress up oats or cereal.

  1. Wash your apricots.
  2. Cut your apricots in half to remove the pits. You can also chop them into quarters, slices, or cubes as well.
  3. Dry them in a dehydrator[2], skin side up, at 100 degrees F for approximately 48 hours.
  4. Store in a nice, dark place in airtight, dry, and clean containers. Keep in mind that light will damage them.

How to rehydrate:

Whether rehydrated or dehydrated, apricots can have a fantastic affect on your dishes, adding wonderful flavor to what might be an ordinary, drab meal – plus they are nutritious and easy to preserve!
