8 Fabulous Cherry Recipes for that all-too-short cherry season! These easy gluten-free recipes use either fresh or frozen cherries.
When cherry season arrives I can’t seem to get enough of those juicy little jewels. Popping one in my mouth leads to another and another . . . and soon there aren’t enough left to use for a special dessert. While I love feasting on raw cherries, sometimes it’s a treat to make something special with them.
We usually pick our own cherries at a local farm, but last winter I discovered that I can buy bags of organic frozen cherries in most supermarkets. Those ones are already pitted! All of these 8 Fabulous Cherry Recipes use either fresh or frozen cherries, and all are gluten-free!
