There is nothing quite like a sweet Washington cherry. Yes, they are ripe and ready! I picked up these beauties on Vashon Island last weekend. These are sweet Rainier cherries.
On Time’s “100 Healthiest Foods to Satisfy Your Hunger”- Cherries:
They are best eaten whole and washed to remove pesticides. A cherry can be sweet or tart and they are:
~High in vitamin C and potassium
~Can also reduce inflammation
~May improve sleep since they contain the hormone melatonin
Cherries are the perfect desert after a meal of halibut, herb lettuce with avocado, and spiralized gold & sweet potatoes from Jan’s kitchen.
Cherries are a whole food with healthy fiber and a high amount of natural sugar.
