The Health Benefits of Cherries
Cherries are usually ripe in months with an “r”. Or at least that is what the Farmer’s Almanac says. Don’t confuse cherries with the thing that comes on an ice cream Sunday or something put in your cocktail. Rather, a true cherry is a dark and deep red marble with a hard pit and a flavor that is equally as foreboding. Fresh cherries are easily added to both sweet and savory dishes due to their low sugar levels and complex flavor profile.
