I look forward to summer each year, as most people do, but not just because it means the end of snow for us and the start of nice warm weather. No, my favourite part of summer is the fact that cherries are in season. Cherries are my most favourite summer fruit of all and if allowed, I would eat them all day long.
Now, until we moved to Canada I had never tasted, what is now my favourite variety of cherry – the Rainier Cherry. These cherries are predominantly grown in Washington State, but also here in Canada in British Columbia. The Rainier Cherry is unlike any other cherry; it’s light in colour, inside and out, and is the sweetest cherry grown today.
