What’s Round, Red, Delicious, And Has A Stem And A Stone?


It’s cherry season so grab them while you can.  They’re delicious and they’ve been linked to health benefits – like helping the pain of arthritis and gout and reducing risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. They also contain melatonin which can help regulate sleep patterns.

On the other hand it’s just fun to eat them whole (and spit the pits) or chow down on a fresh slice of sweet/tart cherry pie.
