It is a stone sweet-soured fruit, which, in addition to raw, is often consumed in dried or cooked form. When drying, no sugar is added to the apricots, but sugar content remains natural. However, for preserving natural golden orange color and better preservation, apricots can be treated with sulfur dioxide. Non-treated ones lose their natural color in the drying process and are dark brown. Dry apricots are tastefully combined in musli, sweet bread, cakes or consumed as sweet pickles.
