Production & Sourcing
Cranberries are typically harvested in the late summer to early fall when they reach their peak ripeness. Once harvested, the cranberries go through a sorting process to remove any damaged or unripe berries. They are then thoroughly cleaned to eliminate dirt, debris, and leaves.
The sorted and cleaned cranberries are rapidly frozen to a very low temperature to help retain the fruit’s structure. The frozen cranberries are freeze-dried, which removes most of its moisture without jeopardizing its nutritional value, structure, flavor and color
