Certified Organic Raw Sun-Dried Apricots $12/lb. Blenheim variety. Apricots in stores are often subjected to a hot water wash, moistened with sugar water, and/or frozen. Not these! Sweet and very tasty! These are not re-hydrated, so are quite dry. This allows them to stay fresh longer and you get more for your money. Add a bit of water to moisten (about 3 Tablespoons per pound of fruit).
Certified Organic Raw Sun-Dried Cherries $10.00/lb. New Crop Due in March 2016
Bing Variety. Tender texture reveals a sweet taste of summer within. Mechanically pitted. Due to a limited supply, there are no quantity discounts on this item.
Organically Grown Raw Dates $6.75/lb
Available varieties change frequently. The certified organic dates we have found in the stores are from companies that often re-hydrate them with warm to hot water or freeze them. They also usually use wheat flour to cut the pollen. This can cause problems with gluten-sensitive individuals. Only date pollen is used for pollination....no flour. These dates are not subjected to any heat during processing. Grown sustainably and organically, not certified. Sweet, soft, and yummy! Refrigerate after arrival. Due to a limited supply, there are no quantity discounts on this item. See Recipes for suggestions.
Certified Organic Raw Black Mission Figs $6.00/lb.
Figs in the stores are often washed in warm to hot water. These are cleaned in cold water only and have been frozen during processing to kill insects. Smaller and chewier than Calimyrna. Good calcium source. More fiber than prunes!
Certified Organic Raw Sun-Dried Nectarines $8/lb. Failed Crop - Out of Stock until Summer 2016 Sweet and chewy....very tasty. These are not re-hydrated, so are quite dry. This allows them to stay fresh longer and you get more for your money. Add a bit of water to moisten (about 3 Tablespoons per pound of fruit).
Certified Organic Raw Sun-Dried Peaches $8/lb.
These paradoxical morsels are deceiving...so sweet and tasty! Summer abounds with these yummies....These are not re-hydrated, so are quite dry. This allows them to stay fresh longer and you get more for your money. Add a bit of water to moisten (about 3 Tablespoons per pound of fruit).
Certified Organic Raw Sun-Dried Raisins $3.00/lb.
Anytime we have asked whether raisins we were buying had oil added, the seller could not tell us for sure. Labels don’t always list the added oil, even though they should. These have no oil added and have not been frozen. These are minimally processed and have some stems. Thompsons (from green Thompson grapes) are pictured. Flames (from red Flame grapes) are larger, darker, and have a richer flavor. We are out of the Thompson raisins until late January.
Certified Organic Raw Sun-Dried Mixed Variety Tomatoes $16/lb.
It is very difficult to find organic sun-dried tomatoes without anything added. That is what we offer you here. No salt, citric acid, oil, or anything else. Just tomatoes dried by the sun. Very tasty. See Recipes for suggestions. Due to limited quantities, no discounts for bulk orders of tomatoes.
