Chewy Cherry Baked Oatmeal for Heart Health

Tuesday, February 7, 2017 10:42:17 AM America/Detroit

Delicious and good for your heart? Graceland dried cherries boast more than a tart, tangy flavor. They also enable you to reach your heath and wellness goals by offering a low sodium, cholesterol-free ingredient and snack food option. Cherries promote heart health through a powerful array of antioxidants (more than red wine or dark chocolate!) as well as anthocyanins, which are responsible for lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and reducing inflammation.1 This can lead to clearer arteries and healthy weight loss. Looking for new ways to incorporate dried cherries into your diet? Test out the baked oatmeal recipe below for a scrumptious, heart-friendy breakfast or brunch!

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats
1 heaping cup berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.)
1/3 cup Graceland dried cherries
1/4 cup non-fat greek yogurt
1 egg
1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut (shredded)
Honey (for drizzling)

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. In a personal-sized ceramic baking bowl, add oats, egg, greek yogurt, and fruit. Fold in until combined. Add dried cherries, almond milk, and coconut. Fold in again until additional ingredients are combined. Drizzle honey on top of mixture. Place in the oven for 25 minutes or until top is crispy and golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool 5-10 minutes. Garnish with excess fruit and dried cherries. Top with a sprinkle of coconut and enjoy!

Kickoff to National Cherry Month!

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 10:37:48 AM America/Detroit

In celebration of National Cherry Month, we're kicking off with a look at the wonderful process of cherry harvest and grading that creates delicious Graceland dried fruit from these Northern Michigan treasures. Late summer marks an exciting time for us here at Graceland Fruit. Cherry harvest is in full swing and with that comes a round-the-clock process of shaking, loading, trucking, and grading at our facilities and throughout the surrounding area. Have you ever wondered how one of those fresh, plump berries ends up as a tasty topping on your morning oatmeal? You’ve come to the right place.
                                                                                                                                                                                                           
As natives of cherry country, we’re no stranger to long drives past landscapes of fruitful orchards. Graceland Fruit was actually started (over 40 years ago!) by a co-op of cherry farmers who envisioned a process of drying fruit for year-round enjoyment. Their deep knowledge from years of planting, tending, protecting, and harvesting has shaped our drying process into what it is today. That being said, we now know that the first and most important step of obtaining a delectable dried tart cherry is a strong, healthy cherry harvest. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                     
What really matters to us here at Graceland Fruit is the quality of fruit coming into “the pad” to be graded and used for dried cherry production. Graceland uses Grade A cherries in our drying process, so we sample each shipment that we receive from area farmers to test a handful of measures including color, size, absence of blemishes, foreign material, and others. This allows us to ensure that the fruit you’re enjoying is top notch from farm to table. Fruit that doesn’t make the cut is sent off for other uses. Winners continue on to be pitted and primed for use in our manufacturing process. And while the drying process is a story for another day, it wouldn’t exist without the long hours of dedication that farmers invest year-round in the most uncertain of industries: Mother Nature. We’re thankful for our partners in the cherry industry who continue to allow us to bring you an exceptional finished product daily. Here’s to a month of fruitful celebration!
