Cherry Crop Update

Orondo Ruby cherriesIt’s official: cherry season has arrived! As we speak, produce displays, fruit stands and shopping baskets are filling with yellow, blush and dark crimson cherries just begging to be brought home and devoured.

And Cherries go with the 4th of July like boats go with water. Company picnics, town celebrations and family camping trips all include bowls or recipes filled with Dark Sweet Cherries, Rainier Cherries and our own proprietary Orondo Ruby™.

There are many reasons to eat cherries. They’re a good source of vitamin C, fiber and potassium, and are celebrated for being rich in antioxidants. Research has even shown that they can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and gout. Oh, and they’re sweet and absolutely delicious!

Check out our cherry recipes that include Cherry Balsamic Chicken and this unique Chilled Cherry Soup. Using cherries in recipes is incredibly simple. Our cherry soup looks fancy and tastes more complicated than it really is. This recipe will impress your guests and can be served as a starter or as dessert. Yes, you read that right!
