What is it?

Dried apricots are pitted, unpeeled apricot halves that have been mostly dehydrated. There are two main types of dried apricots: Turkish and California. Turkish apricots are bright orange in color with a mild flavor and low acidity. California apricots are darker orange with a pronounced tang and concentrated apricot flavor.
