Mid-June marks the beginning of Cherry season here in the Pacific Northwest. Normally, the city of Emmett, Idaho would have held their annual Cherry Festival this past weekend. Unfortunately, they cancelled it this year due to current events. But I still have this huge desire to go cherry-picking and eat all the cherry things. The only problem is, they're a heavily sprayed crop. That's why I always opt for organic cherries when I buy them fresh. And I buy them when I can because their season is kind of short.
Are you a fan of cherries? The infographic below lists 7 sweet rewards of this sweet super fruit. Yep, that's right. Cherries can be considered a super fruit because they are so nutritious and also delicious. What's your favorite way to enjoy cherries? I like them fresh straight out of the carton. I've also been known to love cherry cobbler and cherry ice cream. Can you blame me?
Scroll past the infographic for some cherry recipes that I've gathered for you from some of my favorite food bloggers. Let me know if you try a recipe and be sure to tell me whether you liked it or not.
