Step 2: Getting started

You Will Need:

Dehydrator, mine is a Ronco ( you will notice, I have labeled 4 out 5 of my trays for easy reading and for keeping track of rotating)
3-4 pounds of Apricots

Step One:

- With warm soapy water, wash and hand dry all of your trays from the dehydrator (DO NOT wash the base)
- Wash Apricots throughly
- Using your knife, half  the apricots & remove the seed (you can throw away the seed or I like to put it in my compost)

While these instructions are clear, and helpful for the most part, i do want to point out a couple things. Soaking the halves in lemon or pineapple juice for 3-5 minutes will help preserve the nice color and the pineapple juice sweetens them a touch aa well. Also the apricots used in the picture are still too green for my liking. I can't imagine they'd taste too good after drying. But to each their own.
<p>Thanks for this! I was wondering how long to dehydrate for and I found your instructable, thanks. Making some now, smells great!</p>
Thank you, they were. You always think you've made enough, until they are gone and you're left wanting more... Next year, I might do less Jam making &amp; more dehydrating
Really really need to get a dehydrator. :D These look amazing!
