Ricotta-Stuffed Apricot Bites

Ricotta-Stuffed Apricot Bites

Not only is dried fruit delicious, but as a preservation method, it reduces food waste. Dried fruit also creates year-round harvest seasons, making for a more sustainable agriculture model for many fruit farmers.


  • 30 dried apricots
  • 5 tablespoons ricotta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup roasted pistachios and/or peanuts, finely chopped


  1. Using a paring knife, cut a horizontal slit in each dried apricot to create a pocket (do not cut all the way through). In a small bowl, combine ricotta and maple syrup.
  2. Spoon ½ teaspoon ricotta mixture into each apricot “pocket.” Flatten gently, and dip the exposed ricotta edge in chopped pistachios. If desired, secure with a toothpick. Arrange on a platter to serve.
