Apricots

Asked June 10, 2017, 4:20 PM EDT

How do I freeze apricots? As one of my favorite fruits I would like to freeze some for use in the winter. Would you suggest cutting apricots and sprinkling them with sugar before freezing? Some online recipes include ascorbic acid blended with sugar then mixed in with apricots prior to freezing. Please suggest proportions of fruit to sugar, etc.
