"wet" dried apricots---what the heck?

soccermom13 | Mar 5, 2011 06:01 AM

I've purchased a lot of dried apricots over my lifetime. Usually they are dry (sometimes so dry they are like leather), sometimes they are moist, and often they are somewhere between dry and moist.

But today, when I fetched my well sealed bag of dried apricots from the basement, to make apricot-almond muffins, they were almost wet when I took some out. These are Maniani brand dried apricots from Costco. I saw no evidence of mold, and they smelled and tasted great, so I used them. (And the good news is that I am still alive :0)

But I was alarmed that they are so wet. I can't help but think that all that extra moisture could provide a dandy breeding ground for microbes. I plan to freeze these in small packages later today.

Has anyone else ever had "wet" dried apricots?
