Cherry Season

posted on: Sunday, May 31, 2009

Today I got two boxes of cherries at the flea market for $2.00. They were harvested yesterday and they were righteous! The Nectarines were $1.00 a pound and the avocados were even cheaper.

I then went to the supermarket where corn, radishes, cucumbers, and purple lettuce were all so cheap.

I'm really looking forward to summer with all it's abundance and deliciousness.

now...what should I make with all my cherries?


  1. We had an enrichment meeting centered on family history recently, and my mom and I made THE most incredible black forest cake to celebrate our vastly German heritage. The recipe we found online gave us the steps for a really great chocolate cake, and then said to use something totally american like cool-whip and cherry pie filling, so we threw that part out, and made a dense whipped cream from scratch and found a can of EXPENSIVE but incredible Oregon brand cherries at the grocery store and added a bit of corn starch to the juice to make a thicker cherry scrumpteousness. We then layered the cakes and the cream and cherries, topped with shaved chocolate and partook of the divinity. THAT is what I suggest!

  2. I've been seeing a lot of cherry kuchen's around on the food sites. I want to make some, but I usually just eat my cherries raw. They seem too precious to change.
