Cherries are high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. They can be eaten raw, preserved in brandy, baked in a clafoutis (a tart made of fruit, typically cherries, baked in a sweet batter) or pie, or pitted and juiced. They’re easy to prepare…just wash them off, pop in your mouth, spit out the pit, and enjoy!
The window for cherry season is short! Like, just around two month. They range in color from bright to deep red, with semi-firm flesh and a rich, sweet to tangy flavor.
When you eat cherries, you enjoy much more than just their amazing taste. They’re packed with antioxidants and offer many health benefits, including help with insomnia, joint pain and belly fat. Cherries could be just what the doctor ordered.
