Cappadocians take the process of drying apricots very seriously. They don't feel it is worth to dry only a few dozens, you should dry tons of them in a sun heat of the summer. Therefore, if you happen to be in Cappadocia in the summer, you will not only have a chance to try the best, the juiciest fresh apricots but also, you will ​witness the traditional sun drying procedure. Nothing too complicated: the apricots are laid on the ground and waiting for the sun to prepare them. Not only tasty but a most healthy snack, sun dried apricots bring essential vitamins with an interesting Cappadocian​ swirl.
