First Cherries


One food that I miss dearly every year when it disappears from the grocery produce isle in the fall is cherries. When they reappear, its like a taste-bud’s dream come true, an old friends come back to visit. The one pound bags of delicious, sweet juicy dark ruby cherries have returned! Hold one by the stem, stick in your mouth to separate the fruit from its stem. Let it roll around on your tongue, feel the smoothness of its skin, the firm roundness of the fruit, mouth waters in anticipation of the first bite. Teeth break through the skin with a small pop sound, pulverize the soft tissue inside, squeezing out the sweet red fresh cherry juice exploding in your mouth. This is what summer taste like!
