Did you know that cherries are one of the most sociable summer snacks? C'mon! Who hasn't devoured a whole bag of these ruby gems during an afternoon of chit-chat with friends? (Bet you're saying "guilty!" right now).

Easy to pack and delicious to eat, cherries are definitely the stars of many beach trips, backyard BBQ’s and outdoor adventures. If you decide to turn them into pies, shakes or ice creams then it's guaranteed that you'll become a superstar! At least amongst your loved ones!

BC-grown cherries, particularly those harvested in the Okanagan Valley, tend to be dark, luscious, and juicy. Talk about summer freshness!

To make sure you pick the best of the best, choose firm ones with the stems still attached.

Wanna enjoy them for longer? Store them in the fridge unwashed and they'll last for several days!

Here's some inspiration on how to make cherrylicious dishes before you devour them all.
