Life is indeed like a bowl of cherries! I can't wait till it's cherry season. Btw, is that child licking a butter knife in the header picture above you?
Hi Elaine! Yes, that's me as a four(?) year old, already a lover of food, obviously!I gave in to a bag of non-local cherries, just because I couldn't wait for the season to start:)
Ahhh, cherries are the best! I'm about to break down and buy a bag myself now that the price has come down a bit! I always wish cherry season lasted longer. I think all the Michigan cherries get sold for jam - most of our eating cherries come from Washington state! Crazy, huh?
You know Barb and Elaine - I completely forgot to ask what you do with cherries - besides eat them in hand? I've done the traditional clafouti, now want to try something else.Barb - I have a funny feeling my cherries also came from Washington State, but of course, it's much too early for local ones here.
What a coincidence--cherries everywhere today! Pretty bowl too.
Thank you for noticing the bowl, Lisa, which I am crazy about! Foodbloggers ( including myself and you) remind me of the little fishies I used to watch at the beach, racing left, then right. We all try to use what's in season - which means an abundance of cherries right now! I love Nick's book, and you've done him proud with your cherry crumb cake!
Traverse City in northern MI has a big week long Cherry Festival around 4th of July every year (cherry everything!) The only thing I do with cherries is wash 'em and eat 'em.
Barb, that must be AMAZING! Like you, I love cherries straight out of a bag, or basket. Reminds me of beach parties on the Cape as a kid: always watermelon and cherries! But, a whole festival to celebrate cherries must be quite a "do"! Cool.
Katrina, to answer your question about what i do with cherries; recently made a cherry cake with fresh cherries. It was delish!
Elaine - that looks moist and tender - and beautiful! You can see Elaine's cake at:http://www.kitchenexperiments.net/2009/05/cherry-in-cake.html
