Soft and juicy, sweet-tasting with sour notes.

Amarena black cherries are a variety of cherry characterized by its sour and tart flavor. Its flowering tree is definitely one of nature’s best spectacles during the spring season.

Once detached from the branch, sour cherries should unfortunately be consumed within a few days because they tend to wither and degrade quickly. Fear not, through drying, Makadamia gives you the chance to enjoy them all year round!

It is said that it was Lucius Licinius Lucullus, the Roman gourmand famous for his abundant “Lucullan” banquets, who first discovered the goodness of these fruits during a trip to Asia Minor. Since then, black cherries have been a constant presence on the tables of Italians during the months of May and June.

Taste and texture: The distinguishing characteristic of sour cherries is their sour and tart taste. This makes them ideal for use in culinary preparations where a touch of acidity is desired. The fruit’s tart notes are diluted by the sweet taste of apple juice. The texture is soft and juicy.

Use in the kitchen: Black cherries are very versatile and can be eaten whole, such as for cake decorations or as an ingredient in salads, or more commonly as a natural sweetener for low-fat yogurt. We at Makadamia, for example, use them as a topping for our oatmeal.

Properties: Amarena cherries are rich in Vitamin A and beta-carotene.

Frequently asked questions and tips

Our dehydrated fruit should be considered the same as fresh fruit in that it has no additives or added sugars. In fact, it contains all the nutrients of the original fruit, from which, however, around 90% of the water is removed by drying.

This means that 40 g of dehydrated fruit, which is an excellent daily portion, corresponds to about 300/350 g of its fresh counterpart.
An example? 40 g of our dehydrated apple corresponds on average to 2 fresh apples.

The best times to eat dehydrated fruit are, as with fresh fruit, certainly at snacks away from the main meals. This way, the fruit will be better digested and assimilated.

All our dehydrated fruit does NOT contain added sugars, only those originating from the fruit.

We strongly believe that it does not need any added sugar either for taste or for storage. In fact, it tastes sweet enough on its own.

Our dehydrated fruit is produced from the original fresh fruit, without the addition of additives, flours or sugars.

Dehydrated fruit is naturally gluten-free. However, products containing gluten are processed in our factory, so cross contamination may occur.

There is no difference, they are synonymous. Dehydrated/dried fruit is fresh fruit from which approximately 90% water is removed by drying.

Drying process removes about 90 percent water from the fruit in order to allow it to be stored for a long time. This process may make the fruit harder. If it turns out too hard for your taste, you can soften it by letting it steep in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes.
