No Time to Waste. Time to Eat Cherries.

I have a true story to tell you.  A few days ago, I realized that I had not eaten any cherries this year.  I panicked.  I wondered if I had completely missed cherry season because I’ve been so distracted by the blueberries and the peaches.  I grabbed my shopping list, wrote “Cherries!" and hoped that I wasn’t too late.

Cherries

And thank heavens!  Fresh cherries, so plump and shiny and perfect, are still elbowing the peaches and blueberries at the market.  I brought home a two-pound bag of fresh cherries last night and immediately adjusted my dessert plans to include cherries.  Because when it’s high summer, we have no time to waste.  We must make time to eat cherries before it’s too late.

So that’s my story.  What goodies have been filling your fruit basket lately, friends?

Wednesday Night Sunset

Above is the sunset I saw last night.  Lovely, isn’t it?

An hour and a half ago I was in the grocery store and had that exact same realization. I purchased a bag of cherries and ate a bowl as soon as I got home.

Yes! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who might be a little obsessed with fresh cherries :-)

I have a whole mess of sour cherries in my fridge, waiting to be made into foccacia and perhaps homemade maraschinos. At next week's farmers market I'm definitely getting sweet ones too!

So, a. What time should I come over for our ice cream sundae party during which we'll sample your homemade maraschino cherries? :-) (They sound awesome. Let me know how they turn out!)
