Meduri World Delights Dried Fruit
Meduri World Delights create some of the most delicious dried fruits – unsulphured and preserved naturally without artificial colors or preservatives. The company chooses the highest quality fruit from growers all over the world – Sweetglow apricots from California, apples, cranberries, blueberries, Rainier and Bing cherries from the Pacific Northwest, Morello cherries from Eastern Europe, peaches, sugar plums, raspberries and blackberries from Chile, Mandarin oranges from China, lingonberries from Scandinavia, and strawberries and grapefruit from Mexico – and prepares the fruit using the “Meduri Method” which means the fruit is placed in shallow trays and dried in small batches with a very small amount of sugar, sunflower oil, citric acid and/or ascorbic acid added to preserve the fruit naturally.
The company makes more than a dozen types of dried fruits including three varieties of apples (Fuji, Pink Lady, and Granny Smith), two varieties of peaches (Harvest Pride and Golden Brush), and three varieties of cherries (Bing, Rainier, and Morello). Each piece of dried fruit is moist, luscious and delicious; so unlike the dried fruit sold in grocery stores which tends to dry out, contain sulphites, and lack natural fruit flavor. Ideal to eat as is, Meduri dried fruit is also a great addition to salads, muffins, and rice dishes.
The dried fruit can be purchased directly from the company (via the website listed below) in 6 ounce bags ($6.70 – $9.95), 18 ounce tins ($12.55 – 39.95), and 5-pound Harvest Packs ($62.95 – $139.95). The packaging of the fruit is beautifully done in mylar silver packets (6 ounces) or silver map tins (18 ounces).
The “Personal Picks Sampler Assortment Gift Set” (illustrated below) is a personal favorite with 6 individually selected products packed in a white box with a beautiful silver bow that generally ranges from $40-$50, depending on the fruit chosen. Anyone who loves dried fruit (and even those who are indifferent) will love this gift set.
