Need Some Cherry Good Ideas?

Fresh cherries are a delightfully versatile ingredient that can be used in a ton of different dishes, from appetizers and main courses to desserts and drinks. Their sweet-tart flavor and vibrant color make them a great addition to nearly any dish, but we have a few suggestions to offer up.

For starters, consider using cherries to make a tangy-sweet salsa. Combine pitted cherries with jalapeno, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice, and use it to top grilled chicken or fish for a summery twist. 

As you’ve seen with this recipe, cherries also make a beautiful addition to salads. After you’ve made this one, you can try adding them to a spinach salad with goat cheese, toasted pecans, and a splash of balsamic vinaigrette. Fresh and tart!

On the sweeter side, fresh cherries can make a cherry clafoutis—a simple French dessert that’s somewhere between a cake and a custard. Cherries can also be cooked down into a sticky sweet compote and served over ice cream or yogurt, or used to make a homemade cherry jam.

If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, try infusing fresh cherries in vodka or bourbon for a homemade cherry liqueur. Similarly, muddling a few cherries in a cocktail shaker can provide a fresh, fruity note to your favorite cocktails.

Finally, don’t forget the simplest use: eating them fresh! A bowl of chilled cherries can be a refreshing and healthy snack on a hot day. Enjoy your cheery cherries!
