sweet michigan black cherries
one of the many delicacies i look forward to ALL YEAR LONG is a big bowl of sweet cherries. there is nothing like a fresh crop in at the farm markets-- big, round, with a crunch as you bite into them, yet juicy and dizzyingly sweet on the inside.
we now have a handy-dandy cherry pitter, but i prefer to chew the meat off the pit, and engage in the very mature behavior of pit spitting. curl the tongue, take a deep breath (minding not to inhale the pit) and let 'er fly. great for contests. fun to last the whole summer, or at least until cherry season is over. since the big storm, the season isn't looking long this year. oh well, i've had my fill until next year.
