Country Spoon Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate is made from our own Utah Cherries. Our cherries are grown at higher altitudes than in other locations throughout the United States. Perhaps it’s the higher altitude, the longer daylight hours, or the dryer air with less humidity, whatever the difference, Utah grown tart cherries are higher in soluble solids (brix). The higher brix make Utah tart cherries naturally sweeter. The tart cherry juice concentrate made from our Utah cherries is also made from tart cherries higher in brix. The brix level of our concentrate is 68 which makes our concentrate thick like molasses.
