Aronia berries, also known as chokeberries, have some of the highest levels of anti-aging, disease-fighting antioxidants of any food. Anthocyanins, which give berries their dark rich color, are over five times greater in aronia than in cranberry juice, and are vitamin and mineral rich. The tart taste of aronia berries comes from their tannins, and can be reduced through freezing, increasing their sweetness and making them taste more like blackberries.
- Aronia berries can be dehydrated, used in baking breads and muffins, or made into delicious jellies and jams.
- The berries can be juiced or added to your favorite smoothie recipe for a delicious and nutritious drink.
- Toss a handful on top of a bowl of oatmeal or blend them with other fruits in pies or cobblers.
