Bulk Dried Cranberries
Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruit is proud to offer many selections of dried fruit and nuts, and we choose only the best products for both our online and offline markets. Our bulk dried cranberries are plump, luscious, just the right amount of tart, and sweet.
Cranberries were named when the first European settlers in the New World of the Americas arrived and observed that the cranberry bush’s foliage bore a resemblance to a crane. Historically speaking, Native Americans were the first peoples to use cranberries as a food. They also used the red berries as dye and as medicine. The first person to cultivate and farm cranberries was Henry Hall in 1816. He was a veteran of the American Revolutionary War.
Dried Cranberries are recognized for their sweetly tart flavor and are also known as craisins in some circles. They are a healthy addition to oatmeal and other hot cereals, and also find their home in muffins and cakes. Cranberries are also quite delicious by the handful as a light and healthy snack! Our customers have been using these cranberries over their most popular salads.
Recommendations For Storing Bulk Dried Cranberries
We recommend storing our bulk dried cranberries in a cool dark place, in your pantry or in your refrigerator. Stored this way in an airtight container, they will stay fresh for up to a year. Stored in your freezer, frozen Dried Cranberries will stay fresh for between a year and 18 months.
Our Dried Cranberries contain significant levels of antioxidants, which are thought to help protect against cancer, heart problems, and other diseases. They also contain proanthocyanidins, which aid in preventing certain types of bacteria, such as E. Coli, from adhering to the wall of the urinary tract. Like many of the dried fruits we provide, Dried Cranberries also provide much needed dietary fibers.
