Nanche (or nance) is a sweet yellow fruit native to Mexico and much of Latin America. It has a large pit and is similar in size to a cherry. Nanche fruit is used to flavor ice cream, fruit smoothies and preserves. Diced nance makes for a tasty topping as well.
Nanche cherries are not really cherries, but the fruit of a native bush related to the crepe myrtle. It is sweet with a nutty aroma, and is preserved in a light syrup with a touch of cinnamon. Nanche fruit are packed with vitamins and minerals - especially Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin E, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin.
Once opened, store your jar of nance in the refrigerator. Note that nanche contains pits. These nanche are produced by Mama Lycha in Mexico.
