Every summer, I count down the days until cherries are in stores. As one of the few truly seasonal fresh fruits or veggies, we only get to enjoy them for a limited time, from June to August, each year. My family goes through a bag of them on a weekly basis, and we love eating them plain or blended into smoothies, baked into pies or grilled and served with yogurt.
We’re excited to partner with our friends at Superfresh Growers to celebrate cherry season this summer. Superfresh cherries are extra juicy, extra tasty, and extra-large!
Cherries are great for snacking and desserts, but there’s are lots of ways to enjoy cherries for breakfast, lunch and dinner too.
Here are a few of our favorite Non-Dessert Cherry Recipes for your family to enjoy this summer:
Berry Cherry Baked Oatmeal – Get the kiddos in the kitchen on a Saturday morning to make this yummy baked oatmeal! We like to add a little Greek yogurt to top it off.
