Rainier Cherries

I'm not a huge fan of  Bing cherries (the dark red ones), but I love when June rolls around because Rainier cherries (or white cherries), are at their peak.  These large yellow-red cherries are especially sweet, and have a completely different flavor than your regular Bing cherries.  Several things distinguish the Rainier cherry from other cherry varieties. The first is the unusual and distinctive color discussed above. Rainiers also have a tender texture which is almost creamy, and their sweetness is much higher than that of ordinary cherries.  

Put a bowl of cherries out today!

It's only 90 calories for a 1 cup serving, 3 grams of fiber, and lots of Vit. C.  I don't have a recipe here because I'm busy snacking...
