Tip of the Day: Pick Your Cherries Ripe!

Cherries are ripe around late spring. You will see them in abundance everywhere usually in May.
When selecting your cherries, you want fruit that is uniform in color. The darker the color the sweeter the taste with sweet cherries.
Once you get them home, place them into a bowl in the refrigerator. Do not wash until just before you are ready to use.
Cherries should be eaten within 2-3 days of purchase. If you can get cherries with stems, they will last a bit longer than cherries without stems.
