A. Goldenberries are a fruit originally from Peru and Colombia but are now grown in warm climates around the world.
Here’s a bit of background information from the website BeOnLiving.com: “Also known as Inca Berries or Incan Berries, these sweet and tangy dried fruits were a staple of the Peruvian ancients but were nearly lost to history. Luckily, this delicious, nutritious berry has been rediscovered and is once more making culinary conquests.
“Dried, goldenberries are like chewy, citrusy raisins. Tart, sweet, and highly nutritious, they’re great for snacking right out of the bag.
“They’re bursting with nutrients – especially phosphorous and Vitamins A, C, B1, B6, and B12. They also deliver a healthy dose of bioflavonoids (known to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral properties).”
According to LiveSuperfoods.com, goldenberries are also high in protein. Each serve offers 16 percent of the daily recommended allowance.
Use goldenberries in most ways you’d use raisins, yet want that more citrusy flavor: oatmeal cookies, rice pudding, granola, smoothies, pies.
