Dried Sour Cherries

Dried sour cherries are among the most difficult dried fruits to produce due to the particular nature of their pit. The density of the pit is very similar to the density of the fruit’s flesh. As such, machinery alone is not sufficient during production and a careful labor manufacturing process is also required.

  • Production of Dried Sour Cherries
  • Our dried cherries begin as fresh and ripe sour cherries that are then dried in the sun. They undergo four laser scans and very slow hand sorting at the rate of about 20 kilograms per person per hour. In every kilogram an average of 2 pieces of pit fragments are found and removed.
  • Sour cherries are especially attractive to sow bugs and as such, processing them requires a long period of fumigation and a strictly isolated production ground.
  • We can supply sour cherries through wholesalers to our customers’ nearest shop as well as to department stores like Costco, Trader Joe’s and WholeFoods where you can buy and enjoy them straight out the bag.
  • Health Benefits of Dried Sour Cherries
  • Dried sour cherries, also called dried tart cherries, are obtained from the fruit of the sour cherry tree (Prunus cerasus L.) and are a great source of nutrition. Eating 10 grams a day can already provide health benefits since cherries are rich in fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B-complex vitamins.
  • Sour cherries are an exceptional source of antioxidants, most importantly the flavonoids anthocyanins. Research has shown that consuming sour cherries helps reduce inflammation as well as the impact of oxidative stress on the body’s cells, and can therefore prevent heart disease and cancer.
  • Sour cherries are also rich in quercetin, another antioxidant compound which has been linked to improved immune system function.
  • How to Use Dried Sour Cherries
  • Sour cherries offer a delicious combination of sweetness and tartness as well as a chewy texture.
  • They can be enjoyed right out of the bag and are more and more in demand by various brands serving customers who are looking for healthy and nutritious snacks. Their sour-sweet taste can also enhance morning yogurt or oatmeal as well as trail mixes, muesli, cereals, and granola.
  • Like blueberries, sour cherries are commonly used in bakeries for the production of baked goods. They can be added to the batter for cookies, scones, muffins, cupcakes or breads. In such recipes, they pair well with nuts and dark chocolate chips.
