Default Apricot purée

I'm getting ready to make a spring beer and want to know if I can use this apricot purée in the secondary. The list of ingredients seem ok to me but I've never used fruit before.
Anybody that has used fruit purée in a beer, I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Ingredients seem fine. Usually when I use fruit I puree it myself and use 1# a gallon

You also have to take into account if it was fresh puree you made or canned. As you notice on the label many canned ones are sweetened.

I was going to take the tub of purée which is 2.2# and divide that into two fermenters. My brew will be a 10 gallon yield. I've heard that apricot can take over the flavor. I was thinking hops first then a slight refreshing flavor of the apricots. From what I've read 1-2# is plenty for a 5 gallon batch. I've never made a fruit beer before so I'm walking into uncharted territory. Thanks for the input.
