Accordingly, how many apricots should I eat a day?
Obviously dried apricots count as one of your five a day. The recommended portion is 30gms, that is 3 or 4 apricots. All dried fruit contains the same nutritional qualities as the original fresh fruit. In fact, weight for weight the dried form contains more of the antioxidants, minerals and fibre than the raw original.
Also, when should you eat apricots? Fresh apricots are at their peak for a few precious weeks from late spring through summer, giving you an opportune window to include them in every meal of the day. Try them for breakfast, folding diced apricots into muffin, scone or pancake batter.
Subsequently, question is, can you eat apricot skin?
Apricots can be eaten whole, skin and all. The only time you may want to remove the skin is if you are using apricots to make baked goods, as the skin can change the texture and appearance.
