Happiness is sharing cherries a bowl of cherries and a book of poetry with a shade tree.

— Astrid Alauda

Whether you like them sweet or sour, there is only a brief window of time to enjoy fresh cherries. The short cherry season (lasting as few as four weeks and peaking around mid-July) gives us sweet cherries from the Pacific Northwest and sour cherries, also known as “pie” or “tart” cherries, from Michigan. While sweet cherries are often sold fresh, most of the sour-cherry crop is canned, dried or frozen.
