Apricot Measures, Substitutions, and Equivalents

Peaches and nectarines may be substituted for apricots in most recipes. The flavor will not quite be the same, but the result will still be delicious. Other substitutions include apriums (a cross between apricots and plums, with a more prominent apricot flavor) and pluots (a cross between plums and apricots, with a more prominent plum flavor).

• 1 pound fresh apricots = 8 to 12 whole fruits
• 1 pound fresh apricots = 2-1/2 to 3 cups sliced or halved
• 2-1/2 pounds fresh apricots = 2 to 3 pints frozen
• 2-1/2 pounds fresh apricots = 1 quart canned
• 6 pounds fresh apricots = 1 pound dried apricots
• 1 pound dried apricots = 2-3/4 cups
• 1 pound dried apricots = 5 cups cooked
• 6 ounces dried apricots = 1 cup
• 6 ounces dried apricots = 2 cups cooked
• 16-ounce can apricots = 2 cups drained
