I must admit I'm not really a cherry fan, which I know sounds like sacrilege to some. But dang if they just don't look so pretty at the farmers market, all red and bright and cheery. I had to buy some the other day just because I saw this (super easy) recipe and besides, my family likes them, and I do what I can to please them. We have a farmer's market just a few blocks from our house on Tuesdays so it's the time of year to take a walk in the evening and appreciate the goodness grown around us and savor a few treats.
With a short growing seasons I never want to miss out on anything I see
at the market. Could be there one week and gone the next, you never
know. I wish they made these brilliant Local Foods Wheel for more areas. Have it posted in my kitchen and I can just spin it around to see what's available this season and what I can anticipate in the coming months. It keeps me on my toes for collecting recipes and experimenting with what's in season.
