I use a couple methods for freezing my apricots. First I cut them in halves, remove the pits and place them on a cookie sheet to freeze. Once frozen remove and place in a freezer bag. These work great for throwing in smoothies and my kids like to eat them frozen, as is.
My favorite way to freeze things is by pureeing and placing in freezer trays to make food cubes. This is the best way to make your own baby food and even though I don't have babies anymore I still love this method. I use food cubes for smoothies and for adding nutrients to any meal - I have to be sneaky around my house.
Another freezer option is popsicles. We love experimenting with different kinds of popsicles so this was no exception. I pureed the apricots and added honey to sweeten, then froze in popsicle molds. Mine are in great need of replacement so it will be hard to decide with all the options available now.
You can use these methods for freezing any kind of fruit or vegetable (although veggie popsicles might not fly around here). As always experiment and see what works for you.
