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.
