Eastern Washington Cherries

June 9, 2014

20140609-072902.jpg We were in Eastern Washington this week-end close to Leavenworth for a family wedding. It was beautifully sunny and warm. The dry air is such a treat. Meandering back stopping at farm stands this time of year is such a treat too. The cherries just so abundant. Whether they are Eastern Washington cherries or whatever area you are finding them, the season is short but oh so sweet. Try them next to cheese. We found a piece of Beecher’s yesterday on one of our stops and they are divine together. Pit them and toss in your next salad. Mix them with corn for a sweet and tart dish on your next picnic. However you enjoy them, savor the flavor, as they are a sweet marker that Summer is upon us.
