Country Ovens: Cherry De-Lites!
Door County attracts visitors all summer long - starting in May, when the white cherry blossoms are flourishing - to late summer when they are transformed into the most amazing tart cherries in the world. Cherry De-Lites have captured all the nutrition and flavor, from blossom to bounty, that these cherries are known for.
Origin of Cherry De-Lites
In 1987, Country Ovens started dehydrating cherries at home and found them to be delicious. They thought to themselves, "Everyone should be able to enjoy these De-Liteful cherries year round," and Country Ovens Cherry De-Lites were born.
They produce only the best quality Door County Dried Cherries that you are sure to find are plump, tart, and bursting with flavor!
Cherry De-Lites are produced exclusively from Country Ovens's famous Grade-A Door County Cherries. When in the area, we invite you to come in and shop their Country Store in Forestville, located in Southern Door County.
Indulge in sampling many of their famous cherry products, and enjoy watching a video tour on how the famous Cherry De-Lites are made. Country Ovens products are available year round on their website at www.countryovens.com or by calling 1-800-544-1003.
