I am trying to find dried strawberries that don’t have sugar added, which for some inexplicable reason is rarer then unicorn horns because the fruit-drying companies have decided, in their infinite wisdom, that the strawberry- one of the most perfect fruits in nature- needs to be disgustingly, unhealthily sweet before consumers will but it. (Yes, this post was almost a Pit rant, how did you tell?)
Google is being its usual unhelpful self; searching for “dried strawberries no sugar added” will bring dried non-strawberry fruit, dried strawberries with the standard amount of sugar added, and freeze-dried strawberries. I don’t want freeze-dried strawberries. Doing an advanced Google search with the word “freeze” excluded does absolutely nothing.
I’m trying to be optimistic here, and if I can’t exclude “freeze-dried”, maybe I can input… whatever the opposite word is, and see if that helps any. Again, Google is being no help with fruit-drying vocabulary, so I turn to you. Is there, somewhere out there, a helpful word that can light my way? Or am I stuck with disgusting sugar-berries forever?
(PS. I’m also looking for the strawberries to be kosher-certified, but so far that hasn’t come up in that I can’t find any unadulterated strawberries, kosher or no).
