You won’t understand the real taste and smell of Armenia if you haven’t tasted Armenian “dried fruit”.
Dried fruit production can be considered as one of the most perspective industries of the Armenian agriculture: it has the characteristic of tradition and is implemented in almost all regions of Armenia. Home-made dried fruit production is very common among Armenian families.
Dried fruit in Armenia is a tradition of ages and the concept of “Armenian dried fruits” testifies about quality and trust. It is well known that fruits and vegetables grown in Armenia and such products as dried fruits, jams and compotes produced from Armenian fruits are considerably different from the ones grown in other regions due to their special aroma and taste conditions.
Dried fruit is otherwise called “chir”. It contains a large number of bioactive materials useful for people. Besides, the concentration in dried fruits is higher than in fresh ones. They constitute the real sun, summer and Armenian extraordinary coloring. The secret of such unique taste is specified by geographical location, environmental conditions, plenty of sunlight, quality of mountain water and many other features which create almost ideal conditions for growing apricots, pears, apples, plums, etc.
I want you to know that:
- Dried apricots contain calcium, which makes your bones stronger and preserves nerve function,
- Raisins are dried grapes. They provide many vital vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium and vitamin B. They are rich in antioxidants.
Today Armenian dried fruits are supplied not only in Armenia but also on a foreign market.
