Much like cranberries or raisins, goji berries often come in dried form. However, unlike other dried fruits these wrinkled berries are seriously nutritious. With their tart flavor, reminiscent of something between a raspberry and a sun dried tomato, goji berries lend themselves to many different uses.
Best of all, goji berries have 20 times the antioxidant power of prunes (that already rank extremely high in antioxidants) and contain over 3 times more than blueberries.
Keep them in a zipper lock bag in your freezer for long-term storage, or in an air-tight container. This will keep them nice and fresh so you can try some of these ways to use goji berries that are fun and novel.
