Preheat oven to 350 °F. Lightly oil two, 9- by 5-inch loaf pans.


Cook apricots in water in covered medium-size saucepan for 10–15 minutes or until tender but not mushy. Drain and reserve 3/4 cup liquid. Set apricots aside to cool.


Cream together margarine and sugar. By hand, beat in egg and orange peel.


Sift together flour, dry milk, baking powder, soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with reserved apricot liquid and orange juice.
