Though cherries are synonymous with summer, their deeply tart and sweet flavor should be enjoyed all year round. If you freeze a few after your trip to the orchard (just be sure to pit them first!), you’ll have them on hand for everything from refreshing cocktails to savory sides. Fresh, frozen or even dried, you’ll find that they add a pop of flavor to a variety of different dishes. If you’re looking for inspiration, you’re in the right place. We’ve rounded up all our favorite cherry recipes right here, starting with cherry pie—a quintessential summer fruit dessert. We love that this recipe calls for homemade pie dough and combines tart cherries, balsamic vinegar and ice cream for the perfect balance of savory and sweet. You’ll want to keep this classic top of mind for your next barbecue.
