New in the Market: Stoneridge Orchards Dried Fruit

We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

In the early 1960s, Washington State offered a modern day homesteading lottery. The winners would be deeded 160 acres of farmland in central Washington. Karl Dorsing was one of the lucky winners and began farming fruit. The family has farmed the land for three generations. In 2010 the company started marketing their own brand of dried fruit, Stoneridge Orchards .

We tasted four Stoneridge Orchards dried fruit varieties. All are NonGMO Project Verified and kosher certified (KOF-K).

Blueberries Whole Dried – A quarter cup serving (1.4 ounces) has 140 calories, 6 grams of fiber and no sodium.

Montmorency Cherries Whole Dried Tart Cherries – 1.4 ounce serving has 140 calories, a trace of fiber, and 5 milligrams of sodium.
Both dried fruits had an excellent moist texture, not shriveled and dry, and true fruit flavors. The cherries were our favorite.

Montmorency Cherries Dipped in Dark Chocolate – 2 tablespoon serving (about 6 pieces) has 120 calories and no sodium.

Strawberries Dipped in Dark Chocolate – 2 tablespoon serving (about 6 pieces) has 130 calories and no sodium.
