Handful of Cherries

I just finished a handful of some of the sweetest cherries I have ever eaten. Although the season for cherries is winding down you can still find the juicy, heart shaped fruit at the local store. They are packed full of vitamin A, vitamin C, and antioxidants. I thought I would share a favorite recipe.

    You saved the day Cyndi. Your sweet cherrie pie would not be full of vitamin C if it wasn't for the unboiled Cherries. Vitamin C is mostly destroyed due to heat application…
