"Be on the look out for Golden Berries, the next big thing!"
(A.K.A.- PHYSALIS, PERUVIAN GROUND CHERRIES, CAPE GOOSEBERRIES)
Dried Physalis have recently been marketed as the new superfood called Golden Berries.These delicious little berries are related to the tomatillo. They are yellow in color with tan husks on the outside. Golden Berries contain tiny edible seeds packed with nutrients and they are the new superfood.
Some of the Golden Berry’s nutrient dense traits include: Beta Carotene, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Thiamin, Niacin, Linoleic Acid, Oleic Acid, Digestive Enzymes, Antioxidants, Anti-Inflammatory properties and a Natural Diuretic
The flavor is similar to Tomatillos with a tropical perfume and a tangy finish. We love using dried Golden berries in salads and desserts and we have created some savory recipes that are perfect for your summer entertaining.
THIS IS WHAT OUR CLIENT'S ARE EATING THIS SUMMER
