Cherry season is finally here!
It happens to be an incredibly short season, so let’s get started on how to properly enjoy cherries while they are still here!
*Sweet cherries in the US are grown in WA, CA, OR, WI, and MI.
*The two major sweet varieties are Bing (your typical dark red cherry) and Rainier (the reddish yellow ones featured in the image above).
Cherries are FULL of antioxidants, Beta-Carotene, Potassium and Vitamin C!
Always look for shiny, plump cherries with fresh green stems and dark, rich coloring.
Keep cherries attached to their stems, unwashed, & in a paper bag until ready to eat.
Want to enjoy them into the cooler months? Pit and freeze them for long-term storage! You can throw them right into baked goods, or even sauces, right from the freezer!
