I have been drying the first batch of apricots. I am using the solar dryer even though I am using my dehydrator trays.
We ended up with two large buckets of apricots. This is our first real harvest since we have planted them.
I wanted to use old school methods on the fruits so I washed, pitted and then flattened the apricots out. No added citrus to stop coloring etc.
This is how they look day 2. Bill came up with the idea to use the old gate and swingset end. We have the ladder on the end not photographed. If it doesn't rain, they should be dry today!
Next I am going to freeze a bunch.
Finally I will can some preserves.
