I am a big fan of cherries and think they are best just the way they are. I can grab a bag from a vendor on the corner, sit in the park and kill a day people watching. One of my favorite things to do. Unfortunately, most desserts made with cherries are cooked to death or with a ton of sugar or booze. It totally kills the cherry and I don’t understand why you would do it. Now, cherry pie… that’s different. Don’t argue with me. Remember McDonald’s cherry pies?? Oh man!!
