Montmorency Dried Tart Cherries, No Added Sugar, Just a Light Coating of Sunflower Oil to Prevent
Sticking.Packaged in the "green bag"
We're often asked why the unsweetened dried cherries are more
expensive than the sweetened dried cherries. It's because there are
almost twice as many cherries per pound in the unsweetened
cherries. Sugar, which is a fairly inexpensive ingredient, acts as
a preservative, and also adds weight and plumpness to the cherries.
Without it, the cherries need to be dried to a greater extent in
order to be shelf stable. This results in a smaller, lighter, and
chewier dried cherry (still delicious, especially if you like 'em
tart!), thus many more cherries per pound.
