February is National Cherry Month, and what better way to celebrate than 5 pounds of plump & tasty dried cherries for all your snacking and baking needs? Cherry Republic is a Glen Arbor, Michigan-based company that sells almost 200 cherry products and employs over 200 people.
Their unique process preserves the natural sugars and flavor of tart dried cherries, and the versatility of the dried cherries makes them great to buy in bulk. You can substitute them for raisins in any recipe, and they’re a healthy alternative to candy in kids lunch boxes, a great addition to stuffings for roasts, easily reconstituted and substituted for fresh cherries!
