Cool. Lots of history over that way.
The 'cots offer a relatively low-impact, carb/sugar and calorie snack. 5 grams of carb per each on average (with a specified serving of 5) for ~125 calories and a total of ~25 grams of carb in 5. Allegedly good for restorative or maintenance medicine of sorts for the liver, too.
My wife (and in the past, myself) used to make buttermilk, pecan, oatmeal muffins with the dried apricots diced up into them. Sweetened with maple syrup and/or honey (instead of sugar).
Pretty tasty, but the 'cots stick pretty heavily to what ever you're using to dice or cut them, whether scissors or a French knife, and the muffins themselves are real carb bombs. BUT MAN!! They're good!
Good road or trail food, and good gifts, too.
