Cherry is a classic European fruit. This dark skinned sour cherry has a blood red flesh color and intense cherry flavor. While unsuitable for eating raw, it is perfect for a myriad of cuisines. It is commonly used in recipes for liquors and brandies; it is found canned and packed in syrup or as a dried fruit. Our Cherry puree is sweetened with a hint of sugar and is ideal for pastries, sorbet, ice cream, cocktails and mocktails, and savory sauces.
