Why is it that store-bought cherries never taste as good as the ones you picked when you were a kid?

Most store-bought cherries are picked before they are fully ripe. Why? Because slightly underripe fruit is easier to ship.

Jutting out into northern Lake Michigan, the long, narrow Old Mission Peninsula enjoys unique growing conditions which are perfect for producing the most delicious cherries in the world. The surrounding lakes and air currents provide an unusually mild microclimate with cool springs, dry summers and long, warm falls. All of these factors together provide the perfect environment for tree-ripening the best tasting cherries you'll ever try.

Earthy Delights' fresh-picked cherries come from Michigan's Cherry Capital, arriving at our warehouse just hours after being picked. This allows us to buy only perfectly ripe cherries that are firmer, darker and more flavorful than cheap commodity cherries.

All of our fresh Michigan cherries are picked with stems on and are cooled, but not washed. All of this extends the shelf life of the cherries - but never at the expense of flavor.

 

Try big, juicy, sweet, tree-ripened Michigan Cherries... the way they're meant to be eaten

Recipes

Sweet Cherries with Balsamic Cream
Cherries are one of our favorite summer fruits. While they are wonderful when eaten fresh, just as they come from the tree, they can also form the basis for wonderful fruit desserts. This summery dessert is very light & simple - just right for warm afternoons - but still delicious and rather special.

Fruits & berries with balsamic cream will not hold up for very long. Mix this dessert up no more than an hour or two before serving. It's probably best to add the balsamic cream and pepper about 15 minutes before serving. The cherries & whipped cream are wonderful served on their own, but for a special touch, add some crisp almond wafers, a slice of angel food cake or top a homemade shortcake.

Crepes with Sweet Cherries
This version is an homage of sorts to the Hungarian palascinta. Very similar to French crepes, Hungarian palascinta are paper-thin pancakes served rolled, folded into triangles or filled, sometimes with fruit, cheese or even savory meat stuffings. Palascinta are tender, delicious and actually quite easy to make – and their batter doesn’t require the several hours of resting time typical of French crêpes. If you can make pancakes, you can make palascinta.

Spirited Cherry Chutney
Tangy cherry chutney is a great way to preserve your summer cherry harvest, especially if you have first infused them with vodka or brandy! If you haven't, don't worry - you can use fresh cherries or other stone fruit, like plums, apricots, peaches or nectarines. Just be aware that you'll have to cook the chutney longer to reduce the juicy fruit down to a thick, jam-like consistency.

Cherry Cordial
The fresh flavor of either sweet or tart cherries is transformed into a deliciously intoxicating beverage in this simple recipe for cherry cordial.

This recipe uses fresh cherries and vodka; nothing else. Use tart cherries for a tangier flavor (additional sugar optional), or brandy instead of vodka, but you'll enjoy the results with any of these variations.

Sweet Cherry Clafouti
Cherry Clafouti originates in the Limousin region of central France. The name comes from a word, clafir, which in the local dialect means, "to fill." Since cherries are such an important fruit across most of France, it was inevitable that it has become a part of the national repertoire. The dish is something of a cross between a custard and a cake, and is traditionally filled with unpitted cherries. The pits contribute to the flavor and color and, simply because they are there, you must eat the dessert slowly, savoring each cherry-filled bite.

Recipe adapted from "Provencal Light" by Martha Rose Shulman
