Dried Cherries

Gebana
Pakistan 

Cherries grow high up in the Karakoram Mountains in northern Pakistan. Strong western winds bring abundant precipitation in winter and spring. This harsh climate gives the cherries a tart, intense aroma that is concentrated when the fruit is dried and is vaguely reminiscent of cranberries.
The cherries are pitted, but a few may still have a pit in them.

Idea

These cherries are the perfect substitute for cranberries – throw a handful into your kale salad with walnuts, add to cookies or cakes for that extra chewiness. For a boozy chutney with your evening cheese platter, cook cherries with lots of onion in white wine and cherry brandy until you get a thick, dark, rich consistency.
