Cherries

Our cherries are rich red bursts of summer in every single bite. Juicy, sweet, and with just the right amount of tartness, they’re grown in the best orchards in the country. Each cherry is hand-picked to ensure it’s at the peak of ripeness, and biting into one of these gems feels like a moment of pure bliss. You can pop them straight into your mouth for a quick snack, toss them in a salad, or bake them into pies. The taste is irresistible, and they add a pop of colour and flavour to any dish.

When picking cherries, look for ones that are firm, plump, and have a deep red colour. The stems should be green and fresh-looking, not dried out. Avoid cherries with bruises or soft spots. A good cherry will feel slightly heavy for its size and have a glossy skin. If you’re buying pre-packaged cherries, give them a gentle shake. If they rattle around too much, they might be past their prime. Trust your senses – and smell them if you can. Fresh cherries should have a light, sweet aroma.

Cherries are incredibly versatile and delicious in so many ways. Enjoy them fresh as a snack, or pit them and add them to your morning cereal or yoghurt. They’re amazing in salads, giving a sweet contrast to savoury ingredients. For dessert, bake them into pies, tarts, or cobblers. You can also make a quick cherry sauce to pour over ice cream or pancakes. And don’t forget about drinks – you can always blend them into smoothies or mix them into cocktails for a fruity twist.
