Cherries, Sweet (1 lb)

$5.50

1 lb
Cherries, arguably the most highly anticipated fruit of the summer, are at their best eaten out of hand. Although they can also lend their subtle but unmistakable flavor to any number of sweet and savory dishes.

The cherry season is short, especially here in Western New York where we expect the harvest to last just a few weeks starting in early July. However, the U.S. is the second largest producer of cherries in the world.  

Bittner-Singer Orchards

Bittner-Singer Orchards is a family-owned farm in Appleton, NY. Their products include a variety of apples, cherries and other tree fruit as well as tart cherry juice concentrate.

Keep the stems on and store unwashed cherries in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Make sure to keep them cool as their flavor and texture degrade if they have been exposed to warmth. Ripe sweet cherries will last for 2-3 days in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Wash cherries with cool water before use. 

Cooking Ideas




  • Freeze separated cherries on a cookie sheet and then pack in bags for freezer storage.

  • Cherries can be made into a syrup for topping pancakes, waffles, or French toast.

  • Use your blender to make cherry "drinks" such as smoothies or coolers. Don't forget to remove the pit!

  • Bake sweet cherries into cakes, cookies, and muffins.

  • Enjoy a cherry sauce as a glaze over ham.

  • Add dried cherries to oatmeal or yogurt.

  • Try cherry chicken salad!

Arugula and Cherry Salad with Goat Cheese and Candied Pecans


Ingredients
CANDIED PEPPER PECANS
1 cup pecans
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon butter
FRESH CHERRY BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE
1/3 cup fresh BC pitted cherries, packed
3 tablespoons avocado oil (or another neutral flavored oil)
1 1/2 tablespoons white balsamic (or sub apple cider vinegar)
A pinch of sea salt
ARUGULA AND FRESH CHERRY SALAD
10 ounces baby arugula
2 cups pitted BC cherries, cut in half
2 ounces goat cheese (sub a diced avocado for paleo and vegan)
Directions

  1. Toast the pecans in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Once they begin to brown and smell fragrant, add the maple syrup and black pepper to the pan and stir until the pan is mostly dry. Remove the pan from the heat, add the butter and mix it through the pecans. (The butter prevents them from being too sticky.) Transfer the pecans to a piece of parchment paper in a single layer and let them cool.

  2. Place the Fresh Cherry Vinaigrette ingredients into your blender and blend on high until smooth. Feel free to double or triple the recipe to have extra!

  3. Add the baby arugula, fresh cherries, goat cheese or avocado, and the candied pecans to a large salad bowl. Pour the vinaigrette over the top and toss to coat.
