Cherries are sanguine, ruddy, red like blood. They are delicious served just as they are. No embellishment, fresh from the tree, sun warmed and rinsed briefly with water. Their season is short and precious. I must get them quick.
Right now cherries are for sale at Bi-Rite Market and lots of other places around the city, most likely including your local farmer's market. There is a cherry picking event at Riverdance Farm that sounds like fun (though I've never been). And speaking of delicious red fruits, Eatwell Farm is having another strawberry day this Sunday, which is one of my favorite yearly events. This time they've invited everyone, so you don't have to be a CSA member to go!
