Lots of apricots

What shall we do with lots and lots of apricots? Apart from the obvious jam and dried apricots (here drying on an old bed frame), we are making fruit rolls.

After a few hours of pruning, I blend all the fruits with a mixer, add nothing at all, spread the pulp out on trays and plates covered with parchment paper, and let it dry in the sun. So far, so easy, the biggest task is to defend the drying pulp against the sheep who seem to try anything to eat it. By now the drying frame is a stronghold fortified by palettes and surrounding bicycles. Anyways, after a couple of days the pulp has dried into an elastic sheet, ready to be taken off the parchment paper, rolled and stored away – or eaten.
