Dried Montmorency Cherries
Grown in Michigan and Utah, two of the leading areas for cherry production in the United States, Trader Joe’s Dried Montmorency Cherries are deep red in color, which comes from flavonoids called anthocyanins. Of course, because they’re cherries, this probably isn’t terribly surprising. If you’re familiar with Montmorency Cherries, though, you know they’re quite tart, almost pucker-worthy. In search of balance, we’ve added just enough sugar to sweeten the naturally sharp profile of these little drupes – we’ll go out on a limb and say perfect equilibrium is achieved with every handful.
A great snack right out of the bag; they’re also a stellar addition to a cheese tray. Try them alongside our Triple Crème Brie – that combo is a brilliant balance of tart, sweet, tangy, creamy, and chewy. Dried Montmorency Cherries will dress up pretty much any salad, they’re delicious in baked goods – use them in place of raisins to very flavorful effect. They also make quite a good impression blended with something as plain as oatmeal or granola – ensuring they’ll be plain no more.
We’re selling sweet-tart Dried Montmorency Cherries in an eight ounce bag for $4.99. You’ll find them in our dried fruit section.
