Apricots: Versatile and Full of Goodness

The small and beautiful apricot is a delicate fruit, with both sweet and tart properties that make it exceptionally versatile. Packed full of vitamins A, C, K and niacin, as well as mineral content that includes copper, potassium, phosphorous and magnesium, apricots have been credited with a range of health benefits from strengthening bones and boosting metabolism to improving blood quality and heart health.

The apricot season is fairly short, but with St. Dalfour Apricot Preserve you can enjoy the flavour of apricots all year round. Made using an old French recipe, delicious apricots are gently cooked with fruit juice concentrate to conserve the natural flavour of the fruit. Made 100% from fruit, with no cane sugar, artificial preservatives or colours, St. Dalfour Apricot Preserve is also gluten free and incredibly versatile.

You can use St. Dalfour Apricot Preserve to enhance both sweet and savoury dishes. As one satisfied customer said:
