I enjoy the both the 'zingy' flavour and soft texture of the cherries. For my needs, I relax and spend time cutting the cherries to remove any stray pits or pieces thereof. Generally I include the cherries in my go-to muffins, often in combination with OM candied ginger.
Worth the wait
I was waiting for these to come back in stock for a while and they are definitely worth the wait. I wanted unsweetened tart cherries and I am so glad OM has them. I eat them for the natural melatonin to help with sleep and relaxation effects. I put them in my homemade coleslaw as well with OM’s cranberries and sunflower seeds! YUM!!
Unsweetened tart cherries
I love using these everyday in my oatmeal and as a snack. They are perfect in my sweet potato breakfast cookies. My only complaint is that you are frequently out of them. Please bring in cranberries as well that are unsweetened. I do not like any sweetened dried fruits as they are already sweet enough. Thanks for sourcing these after I initially asked for them unsweetened.
Awesome tasting, but beware...
Make no mistake, these dried tart cherries are incredible, I've been buying them here for some time now. But a "rare" stone listed in the description is definitely a giant misnomer. Pits are tiny, but VERY common. I would be extremely careful giving these to kids. It's not a choking hazard, but I've nearly broke a tooth on several occasions. To avoid this issue I've now resigned myself to squeezing each and every one before adding them to food (or eating on their own). It's time consuming, yes - but if they're not soft (ie. quite hard feeling in my fingers), I simply throw them away. It seems wasteful, I know. Especially as this can add up to as much as 10% of the dried cherries I test. Hardly "rare". However, this trick does seem to eliminate 98% of the fruit containing stones. And if I get lax - and don't check - I almost always crunch down painfully on a stone fragment. Frustrating, as otherwise, it's such a great product. 5-stars for flavour (and no added sugar!). Minus 2 stars for pit fragments.
