One of the perks of being a dietitian is that I randomly get food sent to me to sample. Sunsweet sent me their new product that they call "Plum Amazins," which are dried plums. They are very good! As compared to raisins and cranberries, Plum Amazins contain:
I will be honest. I brought them home for my 4 and 6 year old to try and told them that they were a different kind of dried fruit like raisins. Their evaluation: they are "ok." After trying them, they proceed to the pantry and pulled out our raisin supply. :-) But if you're a person like me that gravitates toward a less sweet, slightly sour taste, check out the Plum Amazins! I liked them very much.
The Sunsweet Plum Amazins website has a lot of different recipes that you can try them in. I have my eye on the Quinoa, Grape and Dried Plum Salad recipe. You can easily substitute these dried plums with any recipe you currently have that contain raisins. Check them out!
