Cherry Jubilee


I just want to lie in the grass and eat about six pounds of these.  Oh, how I dream of sweet cherry season!  The best thing about them is that all you do is eat them, fresh, right now.  There’s no jam to make, or canning or freezing or pies.  There’s no imperative to store them, to put them by for winter.   There is only greedily stuffing your face, eating them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and then eating some more, and going around all day with red teeth.  We always eat them in the car on the way home from the market, with the windows down, spitting the pits out the window, because they are so perfect and so delicious, and we just can’t wait until we get home.
