Dried Apricot

Turkey

Dried apricots are fresh apricots which have been naturally sun dried and pitted. Fresh apricots are great sources of nutrients, but once dehydrated, some other nutrients become more concentrated. There is a significant amount of natural sugar in apricots, so dried forms do not require additional sugars or preservatives to further increase shelf life, unlike some other dried fruits.

Dried Fig

Turkey

Dried figs are the dried forms of the fresh fig fruit. Dried figs are made by either drying in the sun, or through a dehydration process to remove excess water, leaving behind a fiber-rich, nutrient-dense snack. Fresh figs are only good for 1-2 weeks after they are harvested, and are best consumed within a few days. Given the long shelf life of fried figs, they can be enjoyed throughout the year.

Medjool Dates

USA

The healthiest natural sweetener and nature’s super fruit, Medjool dates are the largest, softest and sweetest variety. They can be consumed fresh or dried, although it is more common for them to be dried, as it lengthens their life span and prevents early spoilage. They have a deep brown skin color with a flavour that can be described as caramel-like.
