Fruit…everyone’s talking about it–how to get more of it in your diet, which ones are “superfoods” how to get the most bang for the nutritional buck. Even making powders out of them and selling them on infomercials. What is the point of that? If fruit weren’t delicious that might make sense. Colorful food is hip, trendy, enormously healthy and delicious to eat. Who ever would have thought that Oregon Fruit would be trendy? Almost an oxymoron.
Didn’t everyone’s grandma have a can or two of these berries and cherries in the cupboard? Maybe grandma knew something about nutrition. It didn’t take an expensive research project at a prestigious university for our grandmas to know that you need to eat fruit and vegetables. Why do you think they spent all that time canning from the garden? Diseases of epidemic proportion like diabetes, heart disease, gout, and obesity were rare in the old days when people moved more and ate food they made themselves. At Oregon Fruit, we’ve been canning high quality colorful fruit for three generations and we’re still passionate about it. What you will find here are spectacular recipes, fun food and really convenient ways to get your “fruit”on! We welcome your opinions, questions and comments. It’s a little bit “food network” a little bit “front porch” (if you ask my kids, a little bit “hell’s kitchen”!) Just some great ways to put more color in your diet and your life. We guarantee you will love our products. If you don’t, let us know and we will refund your money. That simple, that honest, that’s who we are.
