After proving to be hugely popular in our October 2020 box, Sea Buckthorn makes a reappearance but this time the berries are preserved through drying. These fragile berries are fizzing with incredible sourness and a little goes a long way! In the wild, the berries are bright orange and always abundant, yet they are very delicate, full of juice and are guarded by vicious thorns and therefore seldom get picked by the casual forager. We reckon it is worth it though! Packed with vitamins and minerals - they have around 15 TIMES MORE vitamin C than oranges - and with an acidity comparable to grapefruit, this fruit deserves far more credit than it currently gets.
We reckon these dried berries make an excellent on-the-go snack and would suit being shoved into an inside pocket for any day-tripper or hiker looking for a snack to take with them. If you’re more of a home-bird, try blending them to make a powder and mixing well into yoghurt, cream or even custard!
