25 Ways to Eat Cherries

By Lauren Scott, Arizona Farm Bureau Intern

People don’t usually pick cherries as their go-to fruit. Usually it’s apples, bananas, or maybe even grapes. But not cherries. Cherries are brought out a couple times a year for pie and tart making, and then they don’t get put on the grocery list again until needed. Chances are, you probably like cherries, but just don’t know what to do with them! Well, in honor of National Cherry Month, here is a list of 25 ways you can enjoy cherries!

    I grew up in Michigan, where we had five cherry trees in our yard. The one that produced the most, was a gnarled old tree that had been struck by lightning. It was really short, though, and even when I was little I could reach most of the branches. One day my mother sent me out to pick cherries for a pie, and most of the cherries near the bottom were missing. I was standing there wondering what happened when our dog, Penny, came up and started eating cherries right off the tree!
