About Dried Plums
It is almost impossible to find people who do not like dessert. Sugary things have been foods that everyone has traced and treated like a precious treasure since the very beginning of humanity. Even before agriculture was known, fruits have taken their place among people’s favorite foods. Shrub fruits grown in nature, quince, apple and pear, which can grow and give fruit by themselves, have become food products that are not only filling but also offer one of the most special tastes in the most difficult times.
The first people who knew very well the difficulty of finding fruits in the winter months thought of drying the fruits they collected before they learned to grow their own fruits. Sun-dried fruits did not deteriorate within a few days like fresh fruits, and remained edible for a long time. Thus, they could feed their stomachs by eating delicious fruits even in the cold winter months when no plants were green.
Although we live in a period where refrigerators and greenhouse cultivation are known and widely used, our interest in dried fruits continues in no way. Since the flavors of the fruits that are not stale, easy to eat and practical are sometimes superior to their fresh ones, delicious recipes using dried fruits have been created in different cultures. They also serve as natural and delicious desserts with their sugary and aromatic flavors.
Almost any fruit can be dried. But among the most popular is dried plums. Made from ripe damson plums, prunes are a delicious dried fruit that is loved by everyone with its unique taste and dark color.
Thanks to its sugary and slightly sour taste, thick skins, and rich fibrous and pectin structure, plums are one of the most suitable cherries for drying. When it dries, it takes a sticky and slightly moist, soft form. It is also preferred as a snack because it is not very sweet. The different taste of prunes, a filling and natural food, makes it compatible with many foods. You can enjoy consuming various nuts together. Especially dried plum, which creates a delicious harmony with almonds and cashews, will be an ideal snack with these nuts.
Prune also known as erik kurusu in Turkish is a part of cheese plates that cannot be considered separately. Its sour, slightly sugary taste and its soft but preserving texture will be complementary with walnuts as well as salty and fatty cheeses. You can enjoy a few types of local cheese with raw walnuts and prunes or serve it to your most special guests.
Dried Plums are an important part of Turkish cuisine, although they are not well known. Especially according to the findings of food historians, dried plum was a popular part of both desserts and salty dishes in the Ottoman palace cuisine. If you want to make your kitchens from the forgotten and distinguished people of our culture, you should not forget to double the weight when buying prunes the next time.
Whether you use dried plum in different recipes or enjoy it as it is, it will be much more enjoyable to eat when it is seedless. After your order, pitted prunes are packed untouched and hygienically according to European Union standards. Our packages are specially designed so that your orders do not lose their freshness and taste during shipping.
