Homemade Cherry Popsicles

Cherry Popsicles

Bright red cherry popsicles were always my favorite when I was a kid. I loved their sweetness and they way that they dyed my lips and tongue bright red as I ate them. Over the years, I lost interest in having my tongue dyed bright red for hours at a time and I stopped eating the popsicles. It was just as well because a cherry ... Read More »

Pitted Cherries

When you are working with fresh cherries, it is necessary to remove their pits before you can safely put them into a recipe. There are traditionalists who say that you get more flavor when you cook the cherries with the pits still inside (“traditional” cherry clafouti are notorious for this), but anyone who has unexpectedly chomped down on a cherry pit in a pie or ...

Progressive Cherry-It Pitter

I love working with cherries to make cobblers and pies, but I find that I will often reach for frozen or jarred cherries for convenience, rather than choose to work with fresh cherries.

Pile of pitted cherries

If you do a lot of baking with fresh cherries, a cherry pitter is a good investment. They are easy to use and allow you to pop pits out of whole cherries with very little effort.

Fresh Cherry Cupcakes

Fresh Cherry Cupcakes

Fresh cherries make me think of cobblers and pies, not necessarily of cakes and cupcakes. When I do bake cakes with cherries, I usually default to frozen or jarred cherries because they are so convenient. This time, I got myself out of the rut and used fresh cherries in a batch of Fresh Cherry Cupcakes. At first glance, you might think that putting fresh fruit ... Read More »

Cranberry Cherry Crumble

I really like crumbles because they can be mixed up on a whim. Fruit in the bottom of a baking dish topped with a mixture of flour, sugar, butter and oats is just about as simple as a dessert can get. The crumble mixture can even be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for a few days, which keeps the butter nice and firm ... Read More »
