You can pre-treat the apricots with lemon juice or orange juice so they don’t get as brown. I just don’t have the patience for that, besides it really doesn’t bother me if they are a little brown.

Everyone in my family really loved this bread. It was gone in a day and a half.          Pigs! 🙂 Hee, hee hee.

As for the rest of the apricots, my husband has been eating the them. A “little” at a time. I keep finding plates with 8-10 apricot pits on them. Hmmmmm……………….
