Snack Idea - Frozen Cherries
Now is one of my favorite times of year. My local farm has fresh cherries that are brought in from the central valley of California. These cherries are so fantastic! They are amazing in a myriad of recipes, but on hot summer days, nothing beats a bowl of frozen cherries. When I purchase a bunch of fresh cherries, I immediately clean and pit them. Then I fill a bag and put it in the freezer. I swear, they last for so many months! In southern California, we can have random hot days all year round, so I almost always have some on hand. They are as refreshing as a popsicle without any extra sugar. My daughter will sit and pop them like candy (I do have to cut up some of the bigger cherries). It is a great snack throughout the hot summer months! I hope you give it a try!
