Fans of balsamic vinegars, will be pleased to add our variation to a time honored classic. Farmer Joe’s Cherry Balsamic Reduction is a 50/50 mix of CC Orchards 100% Pure Cherry Juice and Balsamic Vinegar from Modena Italy cryogenically reduced by 25%. The rich cherry flavor will excel at flavoring meats, cheeses, fruit and salads. Fantastic as a sauce or reduce further to create a glaze!

The Balsamic vinegar from these Pickled Sweet Cherries takes on a sweet cherry flavor and makes a tasty vinaigrette to drizzle over grilled pork tenderloin or a fresh garden salad. The cherries are perfect for snacking, eating in a salad, piled on top of brined & grilled pork chops or over a toasted baguette slice topped with goat cheese (my favorite!).
Buy them ready made or try pickling them yourself with some fresh cherries.
This delicious recipe was created by Naramata blogger and Food & Wine Trails writer Elaine Davidson. It was inspired after a taste of the brand new line of artisan chocolate being created at Okanagan College’s Pastry and Culinary Arts Program! Featured as well in the recipe are our own CC OrchardsDried Cherries.

Created originally to survive long sea voyages with minimal spoilage by virtue of their low moisture content, eating them is usually associated with dunking them in espresso coffee. Whether you eat them As Is, dunk them in coffee, milk or wine, just enjoy.
Directions: Place dried stems (~10 grams per 750 ml) in a tea pot and add boiling water. Allow to infuse for 3-4 minutes. Drink once per day for a week. Combine with other loose-leaf teas to make your own custom blend.
