NEW SOUR CHERRY - JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!

NEW SOUR CHERRY - JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!

So excited to release two new sour cherry products just in time for Christmas.

Here's a peek at our recent email campaign, which includes some delicious serving suggestions such as this tangy, tasty and simple sour cherry pavlova....delicious!

Home-grown and hand-crafted by our passionate team, our two new sour cherry creations are a true delight, even if we do say so ourselves...

With a decadent bowl of ice-cream or yoghurt; on breakfast pancakes on a Sunday; or poured over a fruit-topped pavlova for a quick and special family treat, our NEW Sour Cherry Unfiltered Juice and Mulled Spice Sauce are perfect to turn even the simplest dishes into a masterpiece. Also great as a mixer or added to your favourite smoothie.

Perfecting the recipe for our tasty Sour Cherry Mulled Spice Sauce (with a hint of whisky) was a labour of love; and the result is delightfully tangy, and just a little bit sweet. The evocative spices are a delicious match for desserts or poultry, or try it in our festive and summery Mulled Spice Sparkling - see our quick and tasty recipe below. It also comes in a cute little reusable 'milk bottle'. Easy to clean - use it over and over again.

Our 100% natural, 100% Sour Cherry Juice (in a 375ml bottle) is free of preservatives, additives & artificial colouring. Unsweetened and full of fresh, tart flavours. Such a versatile juice. Use in similar ways to a Coulis, you will find it equally perfect poured over your favourite deserts; with meats such as poultry, lamb or pork; drunk neat or diluted; or added to a cocktail. 


What do Sour Cherries taste like? 
Sour cherries are, well, tart. Busting with antioxidants, this delicate and rare fruit has a unique sweet-sour flavour that is seeing a resurgence in popularity. Bright, fruity and incredibly tangy, yet sweet, they add a real zing to any dish and perfectly balance the sweetness of desserts such as pavlova.  

Why are Sour Cherries so good for you? 
Sour Cherries have high concentration of anthocyanins, a type of polyphenol in the flavonoid family.  Studies on these super-fruits have included research on arthritis and gout, exercise recovery, sleep, heart health and gut health.

April 16, 2019

Robert and Anne Ashbolt invited the public as part of the Slow Food Movement to assist with the annual harvest of olives from their young grove on their 375 hectare mixed farm in the scenic Derwent Valley. Sensing that the Australian market for premium olive oil was opening up, the Ashbolts decided to convert a portion of their hectares to olive trees in the late 1990s.
