Cherry red cherries have arrived.
I fall hard for cherries. They are the first of the seasonal fruits that work exceptionally well in both sweet and savory applications.
For sweet you have cherry pie, cherry almond clafoutis, cherry cornmeal upside down cake, cherry breakfast crumble, .
For savory you have pickled cherries to be thrown in salads, roasted cherry compote atop goat cheese crostini, pork chops with cherry sauce.
Or you can eat them on road trips. Popping them in your mouth and shooting the pits out onto the open highway which is how I will be consuming them tomorrow as the boy and I road trip up to Maine.
