It’s already mid July, can you believe it?! One of the better parts of this season starts now: cherries are raining upon us in great, delicious quantities. These lovely little stone fruits taste best eaten freshly washed and without complication. If you want to get a bit more creative, note that sweet cherries pair well with earthy textures, like almonds and other nuts, and quinoa, and with tangy, soft goat cheese, and with greens (think: arugula, spinach). Go wild! The cherry roundup for a full day of cherries:
