What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than with ripe red cherries? And I’m not talking about those neon red Maraschino cherries. Not only are fresh cherries a perfect tasty summer fruit, but they are filled with antioxidants, contain melatonin, aid in brain health, and are a good source of fiber. With the stems and pits, cherries are certainly not the most glamorous fruit to eat. For these recipes, it may take some time to pit the cherries, but the end result will be worth the hassle. When you’re watching the fireworks on Thursday, do so while enjoying one of these treats.
