Print Recipe



  • Cut the apricot leather into small pieces something like 2 inch squares.
  • Put in a deep bowl and cover with water.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • In your blender blend the apricot with water and sugar until no lumps are visible.
  • Strain if you like, I do not strain mine.
  • Pour into a pitcher and refrigerate until serving time.
  • Serve cold.***


* If you are in a hurry and do not have time to soak it overnight. ** You can always add more if you wish to but I find this sweetness is the just right for us. *** If you wish you can dilute the juice in serving cups or add more sugar, just adjust to you level of likeness. I like serving it as is with some ice cubes, when the ice cubes melt it dilutes the juice by itself and I do not need any more cold water.
