Inspired by a recipe in Lipsmackin’ Vegetarian Backpackin’ and having a bag of freeze dried apricots loitering around I decided to do a take off of a recipe inside.The type of fruit, how much of it and as well how much water – with a different concept of being done – they won’t look “done” but trust me, they are like candy at the end. You do need a good non stick pan and a stove you can simmer on. Without non stick it would fry on bad.
The freeze dried apricots can be found at PackitGourmet. One bag is what the recipe calls for making it easy.
