Dried Barberries

1/2 pound - Iran

Iranian Zereshk

Dried Barberries Berberis!

With a long list of culinary uses, this little berry is one flavorful powerful pleasure seeking taste bud maker.

With a “sharp’ish” flavor, or is it sourish? Not a raisin, the berberis is a currant. Commonly known as a barberry, it is not as well known as perhaps it should be.

In some parts of the world it is tradition to use Iranian Zereshk as an ingredient in the making of jams. Naturally high in pectin, these dried barberries will firm up a jam nicely all the while adding their own flavor. 

Zereshk is the Persian name for the dried Berberis, and today “Iran” is the largest producer of Zereshk in the world. Often cooked with chicken and rice in a dish called Zereshk Polo.

This small dried berry has a bit of sour tart taste and a flavor that lingers if you consume plain. Unlike some others though, our Iranian Zereshk berries are edible out of the hand and enjoyable. (this is subjective of course) Because of this palatable nature, you can think of our Barberries for any dish that call for raisins or currants.

And once you get into the groove, you’ll wonder how you lived without them!

warning: Dried Barberries contain Barbarine. Pregnant women should not use barberry because it may stimulate uterine contractions. The safety of barberry in nursing women and children is unknown.
