Bing cherries are low in calories and contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals that can assist the body in preventing several chronic diseases and fight off free radicals. Each quarter-cup serving of dried cherries contains 133 calories about a quarter of the daily recommended fruit intake.
Both fresh and dry bing cherries are a good source of fiber, vitamin A, C and folic acid. They are of healthy minerals including potassium, copper and calcium. Cherries contain certain antioxidants that relieve inflammation, reduce arthritis pain, lower blood pressure and even prevent cancer. Bing cherries also aid in collagen production important to anti-aging and wrinkle prevention. They also contain high concentrations of phytochemicals like melatonin that assist the body in regular sleep patterns.
Our Bing Cherries are ripened to their peak of sweetness and immediately dried and packaged to preserve their flavor and nutritional values. Dry bing cherries make a delicious snack on their own or mixed with other dried fruits, nuts, nut butters or cheese. They mix exceptionally well with dark leafy green salads as well as grain salads. Add them to oatmeal, other cereals, and baked goods like cookies and muffins. Combine these with other dried fruits and yogurt for a satisfying parfait. Reduce them for sauces, add to pies and top desserts. Their flavor is so unique dry cherries can be added to both sweet and savory dishes.
Mount Hope Wholesale offers bing cherries in handy one and five pound bags, as well as by the full case. If you’re looking for a sweeter option, try our tart cherries. Despite the confusing naming conventions, the tart cherry is actually sweeter (not more tart), due the addition of sugar during processing.
