All you need to indulge in this timeless treat on “National Cherry Turnover Day” is cherries and few simple ingredients – making them is as easy as..pie!

Called turnovers because of how they are made: pastry filled with cherry filling, folded over and sealed.  Some prefer their turnovers baked while others like to deep fry them.  Filled with canned or fresh cherries, their versatility even extends to what temperature they can be served at, from hot to room temp. Either way, you choose, you’ll reap the nutritional value from the cherries themselves.

Cherries are known to lower the risk of heart disease because they pack an anti-inflammatory punch. They also help to protect cells from damage because of the antioxidants that are present. If that was not enough, cherries can help to improve sleep quality, as well as improving the symptoms of gout and arthritis. They can also boost exercise recovery.
