Apricot Facts and Storage Information
One pound of frozen sliced apricots, when thawed, provides approximately 7.3
1/4-cup servings of fruit. A 4-ounce cup provides 1/2 cup of fruit and
Serve apricots chilled with syrup or chilled and drained as part of fruit
salads or with cottage cheese. Combine with other fresh, canned or frozen
fruits for fruit cups or compotes.
Serve drained and heated or at room temperature as
a garnish for main dishes. Use as directed in recipes specifying apricots.
Store frozen apricots in freezer at 0?F or below, off the floor, and away
from walls to allow for circulation of cold air. Frozen apricots may be kept
approximately 18 months under proper storage conditions. Temperature changes
shorten shelf life and speed deterioration.
Best if Used By
Frozen, sliced apricots are best if used within 18 months.
To ensure that the frozen apricots do not turn brown, thaw them in the
plastic vacuum-sealed bags. The apricots should be served with some, if not
all, of the juice on and around the apricots.
