Organic Freeze-dried Sour Cherry
What fruit has a sweet to mildly tart flavour with a spicy, slightly tart leg note? We are talking about the sour cherry, of course. Did you know that when cherries are freeze-dried, about 90% of their water content is lost? But don’t worry, the fruity aroma and the sweet-sour taste of the cherry – including all the ingredients and vitamins – is NOT lost. Our sour cherries are not only freeze-dried, but also already pitted and chopped into pieces. This makes them ideal as a snack or, especially because they are so crunchy, as a topping for any dish or drink.
Freeze-dried powder/fruit – What’s so special about it?
Did you know that half a handful of freeze-dried fruit counts as a portion of fresh fruit? This can be attributed to the concentration of our freeze-dried fruits. In addition, they can be kept for a long time without refrigeration, convince with their almost unchanged ingredients, their delicious taste and are nevertheless free of additives.
How does freeze-drying work?
Freeze-drying is a particularly gentle preservation process. Our fruits are frozen directly after harvesting and then filled into a vacuum container. The resulting negative pressure causes the water to escape in the form of water vapour at sub-zero temperatures. The special thing about this process is that the intensive aroma, the natural colour and the high content of natural ingredients – including all vitamins – remain almost unchanged. And all this without adding any additives.
What is the best use for freeze-dried fruit/powder?
The whole pieces of freeze-dried fruit are great as a snack, but like the freeze-dried powder, they can also be used in a variety of ways in the kitchen. For example, in mueslis, yoghurts, desserts, porridges, baked goods or in smoothies, lemonades or teas to give the drink a fruity touch.
What is one of the biggest advantages of freeze-drying?
Because the water content of freeze-dried fruits is so low, they have a very long shelf life if stored correctly. Therefore, for long shelf life, it is important that they are placed in an airtight container as soon as possible after opening, which should be in as cool and dark a place as possible. Thus, freeze-dried fruits are, among other things, also a practical alternative when fresh products are not in season.
