Washington’s Birthday

Fabbri Amarena Cherries in SyrupCherry Time!

Some of us are old enough to remember, in days l-o-n-g ago, before President’s Day was declared, Washington’s Birthday was a bank holiday.

If there is a culinary root to a day on the calendar, our staff is going to find it. Today is the day for eating cherries. Yes the story of chopping down the cherry tree is just a story, yes they are out of season…but this does not stop us from a delicious experience.

We have two brilliant suggestions. Bake this exceptionally easy Cherry Pie after work, or pick up a jar of these beauties…Fabbri Amarena Cherries in Syrup are to die for. Luscious and intensely-flavored, they taste of luxury. These deep-red, wild, Italian cherries have a naturally sour flavor, and are preserved in a syrup made of their own juices.

Use them in place of ordinary candied cherries as well as toppings, over pancakes, ice cream, dessert, champagne and even a glass of seltzer. They are amazing.
