Today, Turkey is the biggest producer of sun-dried apricots – organic, non-sulphite-treated varieties of which are renowned for their sweet, caramelised, slightly tangy flavour.

PURE, PREMIUM PRODUCT: Hatton Hill Organic’s sun dried apricots are grown in Turkey, harvested with care, and dried in the country’s abundant sunshine without the use of sulphites. Unlike their sulphite-treated, artificially-orange-coloured counterparts, they have a brown hue as a result of the sun-drying process, they're sweeter, and they boast higher concentrations of nutrients.
