Cooking with Cherries

Cherry Recipes from Coborns and CobornsDeliversRecipes for Cherries

We all love a great cherry pie, but there are lots of other great dishes to create using fresh cherries. And, those dishes don’t have to be sweet. Cherries are a great ingredient for savory sauces. And they may be the new super fruit! Cherries are full of antioxidants which can help with joint pain and even boost your immune system. These little fruits are also a good source of melatonin – which has been linked to fight insomnia and even slow down the aging process!

Right now cherries are on sale at Coborn’s and CobornsDelivers and we hope you’ll try some of these recipes soon. Just grab your cherry pitter (or some willing helpers) and get cooking!

George Washington made the cherry tree popular with his famous quote, “I cannot tell a lie, I chopped down the cherry tree,” as a young boy. Washington’s birthday is February 22, and we celebrate President’s Day the third Monday in February in his honor. Continue reading “As American As Cherry Pie…”
