In Michigan, summertime means sunshine, days at the beach, Lake Michigan sunsets, and delightful, delicious cherries. Like everything else about Michigan summers, fresh cherries aren’t around very long. Fruity, sweet (but not too sweet) and bursting with flavor, these wonderful dried tart cherries are like a mouthful of Michigan summertime all year long.
Dried fruits are very versatile. Use in baked goods, salads, sauces, stuffings, trail mixes, hot cereals, muffins, scones, fruit cakes, and for homemade ice cream. Dried fruits may be eaten right out of the bag as a convenient and healthy snack.
