As nice as cherry pie: new dried sour pitted cherries

August 11, 2015 3:37 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

We have just started to stock Infinity Foods new organic sour cherries. These dried cherries are pitted (for convenience, and for what Infinity refers to as ‘dental safety’) and have no dressing. They can be added to muesli and desserts and anywhere else where an intense, acidic cherry flavour is needed. They’re particularly good in yoghurts and rich cakes.

Cherries – do you like them sour?

Sour Cherries and health

Sour cherries are what are termed ‘tart cherries’ in other parts of the internet.

They’re becoming a very popular health product, with research indicating excellent anti-inflammatory properties, both in general, and for those suffering from inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. Cherries are also extremely rich in antioxidants and a great source of beta-carotene (which our bodies convert into vitamin A). They’re full of vitamin C, iron, magnesium and potassium, and have the slightly more unusual property of providing a natural source of melatonin, which helps to regulate our sleep patterns.

Bulk Sizes and small packs

As well as the new bulk dried cherries in 8 kilo boxes, we have these in 250g and 1kg bags. Also in stock are bottled organic sour cherries (also without stones) from Biona, in 350g jars. These cherries are stored in apple juice and have a drained weight of 220g.

Other cherry things

If you’re interested in cherry products in general, click here to see all of those we stock. Our range includes cherry juice, cherry non-dairy desserts, cherry jam and cherry spreads. In addition to the Biona sour cherry jar, we stock their sweet cherry jar – something for everyone! We’re also well-known for our natural glace cherries. These don’t have the vibrant artificial red colour of standard glace cherries, but can give a much more sophisticated touch to your fruit salads and cakes. (They’re just what you need for Black Forest Gateau, for example – and I won’t have anyone say that that’s not sophisticated…)
