Cool

Hi Everyone.
I have a bumper crop of apricots this year!
would like to dry some. Need advice. I tried canning them a few years ago but the result was bitter eventhough I used sugar and directions the same as for peaches.
I just tried to dry watermelon and it was a disaster. Thanks, Anita

Anita,
Here are a couple informative sites you can check:

http://www.ag.uiuc.edu/~vista/html_p...G/dryfood.html
I havent't tried growing apricots, but we occasionally freeze sliced peaches. We always went the freezing route as opposed to canning. Haven't tred drying, but the apricots should be great.
good luck,
fred
