In the Northwest, cherry season comes in July. Here in Spokane, we have a Cherry Festival that features a 5K race through the orchards, live music and craft fair. The best part is picking the cherries. I always get carried away and pick more than we can eat before they go bad. So in the past few years I've been freezing them. Frozen cherries are great for adding to pies, cobblers, smoothies and milkshakes. Or just to eat!
