It’s Bing Cherry Day!

“Bing Cherry Day” is what my husband calls the day that special order cherries arrive at our doorstop. To say that my husband loves cherries is a bit of an understatement. He adores and reveres cherries, especially Bing cherries.

Bing Cherries are in season mid-late June, and therefore perfect to celebrate graduations, Father’s Day, or the arrival of summer. Usually the cherries get eaten very quickly. But this year I wanted to try making cherry tartlets, an idea I got from Jenny of Multiple Food Allergy Help, who made my Strawberry Tartlet recipe with cherries instead of strawberries (because her son is allergic to strawberries). What a fabulous idea!

The recipe can be found in Learning to Bake Allergen-Free. The substitution is easy – just use an equal amount of cherries (pitted and halved) in place of strawberries.

Ahhh cherry season. We've been eating our first Bing Cherries of the year. They just came down to a reasonable price last week, so I'm sure there will be more to bake with. Your tarts look so good.
