We love cherry season in our house. They are really expensive most of the year, but when in season they do become affordable. You can find them now on the shelves until mid September.
Mr B suffers from gout in his joints occasionally and was advised by his doctor to eat cherries to help prevent attacks. So they are a staple fruit in our house when in season. I love the sweet plump juicy cherry varieties.
Did you know that cherries are packed with vitamin C (100g provides 25% of the RDA of vitamin C), are a rich source of melatonin, which helps promote healthy sleep patterns, and have an abundance of antioxidants. Legend has it that you can trace the route of old Roman Roads in Britain by looking out for wild cherry trees. It has been suggested that Roman legions spat out the stones from the fruit as they marked through Britain.
Love Fresh Cherries have given us the challenge to let you know how we enjoy cherries in our house and when we enjoy them.
