To us, there are a number of thing that signal the beginning of summer. The smell of the grill, the sound of the Mister Softee ice cream truck, and the sight of beautiful, vibrant cherries. The are the earliest tone fruit to reach harvest and although they are perfect eaten as a snack, we love to add them into sweet and savory dishes all summer long. While you're shopping at the farmers' market this weekend, look for full, glossy cherries with a deep color and green stems. They'll last in your fridge for 4 to 5 days, which will give you plenty of time to make all of our favorite cherry recipes!
