Dried Apricots

Frog Hollow Farm's dried apricots have a sweet and tangy flavor that keeps that fresh apricot taste after drying. Thick and chewy, the apricot medallions range from golden brown to deep mahogany due to the lack of sulfur additives. These dried apricots are a seasonal selection from the many varieties of apricots that we grow organically. The fruit’s brief harvest season is the source of an old Egyptian saying, “fel meshmesh” or “in the apricot,” used much like English speakers would say “once in a blue moon.” Something is “fel meshmesh” when it’s unlikely to happen because the time for it is so brief. Luckily when we dry apricots, the fleeting season extends all year round.

A dried piece of fruit is only as good as the fruit you start with. And with decades of experience growing legendary, organic fruit, Frog Hollow Farm dried fruit is pretty unbeatable. We’re hands-on every step of the way. Each tree in our 280-acre orchard is cared for and harvested by hand throughout its entire life to ensure the plumpest, healthiest fruit. When the fruit is optimally ripe, we hand-slice it (and in the case of peaches, also hand-peel it) right onto the drying trays. Once the fruit is dried, we hand-pack it right here on the farm without sulfur or other additives. We’ve been doing it that way for almost 25 years. We pride ourselves in finding a place for every piece of overripe fruit on the farm that we can, regardless of whether or not a grocery store would deem it pretty enough to eat out of hand. As you’ll often hear Farmer Al say, waste not! And the ripest fruit makes the sweetest dried fruit. As the water evaporates, the well-developed sugar content takes center stage. Not only is drying fruit a way to enjoy the summer harvest year-round, it’s part of our greater ecosystem of averting food waste. Let our dried fruit transport you. Enjoy each sweet, textured bite. And no matter what time of year, savor the taste of summer sunshine.
