Organic Dried Barberries are very tasty and tart. They have been popular in many cultures and today their use is still popular in Persian, Central Asian and Georgian cuisines, especially in rice and meat dishes. They are great in couscous and stuffings. Our Certified Organic Dried Barberries can be used like raisins or cranberries and included in trail mixes or eaten straight out of the bag as a snack. They may be re-hydrated by soaking in water for about 10 minutes. Because of their high pectin content, barberries make great jams and jellies. They can be ground with coarse salt as a sweet, sour and salty rub. Barberry fruits appear to have anti-allergy and antihistamine properties. Studies on the fruit or fruit extracts of the barberry plant suggest potential use for treatment of hypertension, tachycardia and some neural disorders, such as epilepsy and convulsion.
The barberry plant is native to Europe, but is commonly grown in North America (mostly near the East Coast). Chinese medicinal records mention the use of barberry dating back to over 2,500 years, and to this day we are still discovering more of its remarkable properties. Barberry comes in many different forms: root, tea, powder, extract, and more.
