6/30 Calling all cherry lovers! These next few weeks are prime for cherries. These beautiful bing cherries are coming from Washington State where the higher altitudes, volcanic soil and cooler climate make this growing area the best in the world for cherries. You will find these cherries to be bigger, darker in color, crunchier (I like a crunchy cherry, hard on the outside, sweet and juicy on the inside), and a much richer cherry flavor. Tip: Remember to only rinse your cherries just before using, because cherries act like a sponge absorbing water, making them mushy and watering down the flavor if you rinse them to far ahead of time. You will also find the lowest prices of the year on cherries as well. I would be remiss not to mention blueberries as well as the flavor is great and they are coming from New Jersey.
