Few people can resist the glossy deep red of a perfect cherry.

When shopping, pick firm cherries with dark red to almost black skin. Cherries must always be picked ripe because they will not ripen well after being picked off the tree. They are best consumed immediately after picking.

You can store cherries for 1-3 days or freeze them (however, be sure to remove the stone first). The great thing about cherries is that they are fat-free, sodium free, cholesterol-free and a fantastic source of fibre. Eat them on their own as a mid-morning snack, dipped in chocolate for a more decadent snack or make a jam or tart out of them. However you make them, you won’t be disappointed.
