“This is great way to use extra apricots, especially when your tree gives a bumper crop. Apricots are very nutritious so you don't want to waste them and this makes a great snack. These will also keep for a long time.” - by CHERI
Original recipe yields 14 servings
- Preheat the oven to 150 degrees F (165 degrees C), or the lowest setting you have.
- Combine the lemon juice, apricots and sugar in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
- Cover an 11x17 inch pan or cookie sheet with a layer of plastic wrap. Pour the pureed fruit onto the plastic and spread evenly to within 1 inch of the edge.
- Bake for 4 to 6 hours in the preheated oven, using a spoon or a pair of tongs to keep the door slightly ajar, or until the puree has dried and is no longer sticky. Once dry, you can cut it into strips and store in an airtight container.

"I have made apricot leather for years, and kids (and adults) love it. I do not add sugar, but add a banana to a blender of apricots. This gives sweetness without added sugar...." See more"
"I was looking for fresh apricot recipes to use up all the fruit my tree produced. This one is the best I've found. My kids (except the one who doesn't eat things that don't come from a box) LOVED it..." See more - thought it was a fruit roll up. I lowered the sugar to 1/3 c. on the 2nd and 3rd batches because our apricots are really sweet by themselves so the first batch turned out a bit too sweet for me. My oven only goes to 170, but I just left it on and cracked open for the whole day. It took about 6.5 hours."
