Chilled Ripe Cherries
Summer is here! I found my first cherries at the local grocery store. I'm not sure where these are from, but aren't they pretty? To me summer is three foods: sweet corn, tomatoes and cherries. These little beauties are just a sign of what's to come. A perfect addition to our Memorial Day menu which also includes some sweet corn from Florida as well as the first local tomato from the Chesterton Market which was babied along in a hoop house.
I considered what to do with the cherries, but there is no need for a recipe. To enjoy these summery fruits simply wash and chill. Put the cherries out in a pretty bowl and include a second bowl to hold the stems and pits. Delicious.
