Happy National Cherry Dessert Day

Leave a comment

Apparently it’s National Cherry Dessert Day. Even though it’s a while until cherry season I’m going to go for it. Why not? Cherries are awesome! One half-cup of red cherries has only 41 calories but has 1.3 grams of fibre, 13 mg of calcium, 631 micrograms of beta carotene, and 8.2 mg of vitamin C. Cherries are delicious as they are but they’re also good in pies, crumbles, and other baked goods.

For fresh cherries, try this cherry cobbler recipe from 101cookbooks.com.

For dried cherries, try these Raw Fig and Cherry Bars from Diet, Dessert and Dogs.
