I'm trying to make a Magic Hat #9 clone and want apricot in the secondary. Like you, I was confused about the concern for pasturizing the fruit.

I plan to purée the fruit with a sanitized potato masher in a sanitized bowl or bucket, then add the mash to the secondary carboy and rack on top of it.

I'd expect a secondary fermentation due to the sugars in the fruit and the syrup. Wondering if you had the same.
