Our Winter Jamboree

 

Our Winter Jamboree

winter 2016

In the height of summer, people often ask us at Seaquist Canning what occupies our winters. While Seaquist Orchards Farm Market is quiet, the Seaquist Processing is closed up tightly and the cherry and apple trees are taking a deep sleep, our canning kitchen is hosting a loud, fragrant and fun Jamboree. These are the months we have to prepare the many delicious jars of products you purchase all season long.

So what does our jamboree sound like? It is the sound of jars clanking, lids popping, music blasting and laughter. What does it smell like? It is almost indescribable! Today it smells like fragrant, sweet, mouthwatering raspberries. We can always tell the flavor of the day by the smell in the air. What does our jamboree look like? We have 7 full time staff working so hard to make and perfect each jar of jam, jelly, salsa and pie filling. We appreciate them so much! In just three weeks’ time that staff made over 36,000 jars of our top flavor, Chopped Cherry Jam. They are a super team!  This week we are working on “small” flavors and then we move onto another top flavor, Cherry Pie Filling. This year we will make about 17,000 jars of our famous cherry pie filling.

The Seaquist family is very thankful that we are able to bring our fruit full circle, from our orchards to your kitchen. We hope that you taste the love and commitment in each bite of our products!

Cherry Juice Conentrate

Cherry Concentrate is so good for you! 

Cherries are one of the only known fruits that contain melatonin. Melatonin is an antioxidant that helps regulate your body’s biorhythm and natural sleep patterns. Scientists have found that cherries contain more of this powerful antioxidant than what is produced by your body. For instance, drinking cherry juice concentrate before and during a long trip can provide a natural way to ease jet lag. How about that? Cherries, dried cherries, cherry concentrate, cherry juice – it’s all good!

Interesting Cherry Fact #11

Interesting Cherry Fact #11

More fun numbers about cherries!

There are about 7,000 cherries on an average cherry tree, with each tree capable of

producing more than 100 pounds of fruit in a season.

 There are two main types of tart cherries. The #1 tart cherry in the U.S. is the

Montmorency. The newest cherry on the market is the Balaton, named for a lake in Hungary.

  It takes 6 to 8 pounds of cherries to make 1 pound of dried cherries, and there are

about 100 cherries in an 8-ounce glass of cherry juice.

  The major forms of tart cherries include dried, frozen and juice. Dried cherries are

 great for snacks, salads and cereals. Frozen cherries are ideal for baking or making

sauces. Cherry juice concentrate and 100 percent ready-to-drink cherry juice are

 gaining in popularity as well, particularly among people who find it helps relieve the

pain of arthritis and gout.

Interesting Cherry Fact #2

                      This tidbit of info is especially for all of you runners out there – cherry juice is the drink of choice!

“Research from Oregon Health & Science University revealed that runners who drank cherry juice twice a day for seven days prior to and on the day of a long-distance relay had significantly less muscle pain following the race than those who drank another fruit juice beverage.  Researchers believe cherries’ post-exercise benefits are likely because of the fruit’s natural anti-inflammation properties – attributed to antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins, which also give cherries their bright red color.”   (from ChooseCherries.com)
