Cherries are small stone fruits that come in a variety of flavors and colors. There are two major categories — tart and sweet cherries. Their colors can vary from yellow to deep blackish-red. Cherries are primarily available from May to August.
Cherries are highly nutritious and packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals. One cup of cherries has only 97 calories. All cherries are high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. One of the most remarkable benefits of cherries is that they are a rich, natural source of melatonin which improves sleep.
Pitted cherries are great for jams, salads, and desserts, while brandied cherries are excellent in cocktails or as an ice cream topping. The most popular dishes made with cherries are pies and cobblers. Pick up a bag or two of fresh cherries at your neighborhood Food Town, and make a delicious cobbler today!
