Apricots are enriched with vitamin C, which (among other reasons for eating) boosts up the strength of the immune system. This is good for the current situation which is gradually worsening. And a strong immune system could make all the difference.
The only purpose for making these energy balls is that Apricots are rich in Vitamin C. And this recipe is made out of my own creativity, with whatever I had available at that time. It can be stored up to 3 to 4 days , even longer if fresh fruit is avoided. But I prefer adding an apple which gives a wet base for making the balls. I didn’t want to add dates and make it a regular Dry Fruits Fudge / Burfi
