Cook rice, 2 cups at a time, in plenty of boiling salted water for 15 minutes. Drain well. Cut apricots in thin slices. Place warm rice in a large bowl and add remaining ingredients, seasoning with salt and pepper. You need just enough oil to moisten rice without making it mushy, so add it gradually.
