Not only is dried fruit delicious, but as a preservation method, it reduces food waste. Dried fruit also creates year-round harvest seasons, making for a more sustainable agriculture model for many fruit farmers.

Directions
  1. Using a paring knife, cut a horizontal slit in each dried apricot to create a pocket (do not cut all the way through). In a small bowl, combine ricotta and maple syrup.
  2. Spoon ½ teaspoon ricotta mixture into each apricot “pocket.” Flatten gently, and dip the exposed ricotta edge in chopped pistachios. If desired, secure with a toothpick. Arrange on a platter to serve.
