Sweet cherries grown in the Northwest are the product of a unique mix of sunny days, cool nights, nutrient rich soil and fresh mountain snowmelt from the Cascades. Welcoming this Northwest stone fruit staple into our produce department is an annual celebration we anticipate as the season turns to warmer, picnic-filled days and nights spent outside past dusk.
Enjoy them all year long!
- Freeze sweet Northwest cherries at the peak of freshness and enjoy this summer treat year ‘round!
- Wash, dry, and freeze to later enjoy in pies, smoothies, or even as frozen treats right out of the bag. Pit cherries before or after freezing.
- Or, can them for preserves, jams or jellies, or dehydrate them for a simple healthy snack on the go.
