Convenient and Healthy: Holiday Baking Essentials!

Convenient and Healthy: Holiday Baking Essentials!

We were just carrying on about how fall happened upon us so suddenly this year, weren’t we?! Maybe you feel the same way. It’s not a bad thing at all, ‘cause we need all of our seasons so our trees can go through their natural cycles to produce some of the best fruits and nuts that California’s Central Valley has to offer. And we think that what we do here at Bella Viva Orchards elevates Fruits and Nuts to an even higher place.

Now maybe right now the cooler weather, fall colors, roaring fires and holiday tunes are getting you in the mood for some holiday baking. We say hallelujah! Good for you for getting into that kitchen!

This is a time of year when we celebrate traditions and even make some new ones. And most of the time traditions have something to do with food. ‘Round here, it’s gotta include our Dried Fruits and Nuts. When it comes to holiday baking, we’ve got you covered like a fleece blanket. We offer a generous array of holiday-ready Dried Fruits and Nuts to make your kitchen time even easier.

Whether you’re cooking for your family, your friends or yourself our Chopped Fruits will help you breathe a sigh of convenient relief. Cut down that chopping time and go directly to our Natural Diced Tart Apples, Dried Tangy California Apricots, Organic Thompson Seedless Raisins, Organic Dried Zante Currants, Dried Organic Cranberries, or one of our many other convenient holiday-ready Dried Fruits. For an easy breakfast or teatime sweet, try our Dried Organic Cranberries in these outstanding Cranberry-Orange Scones.

Our great selection of convenient Nuts includes our popular Sliced Almonds, Diced Roasted Almonds, Organic Pecans, Pecan Pieces, Shelled Walnuts and Walnut Pieces. If you’re going gluten-free or just want something healthier and super-flavorful, be sure to grab a couple of bags of Almond Flour and Almond Meal. You’ll find plenty of recipes to use this protein-packed healthier flour alternative in our Recipe section, including the Martino family’s favorite Almond Flour Pecan Blueberry Cookies with Cacao Chips or our Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

Think of all the time you’ll save with our handy and super tasty Dried Fruits and Nuts. Be sure to visit our Diced/Baking section to see all we have to offer! Now get that oven fired up, crank up your favorite holiday tunes, pour a nice cup of mulled cider and tap in to your baking muse. It’s a great way to make the days extra cozy and to make a lot of taste buds happy.
