Michigan Cherries & Free Download

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

I spent several weeks on Torch River this Summer with my family. In several upcoming posts I will share some of our adventures. A trip to pick cherries is one of my favorite “Up North” traditions. This Summer my niece Paige (4) and my daughter Emma (7) and I visited Nagy Orchards in Kewadin, Michigan. We were there at the end of the picking season which was several weeks later than usual and lasted longer than in past years because of the cool weather throughout July. We found several dark cherry trees to pick from and rows of sour cherries were several rows over. We ended eating almost as many as we picked! They were delicious! Mr. Nagy graciously took us on a tour of the processing of cherries after they are shaken from the trees . They are stored in huge containers of ice cold water before being lifted on to the cherry truck (school bus with only the cab) to be delivered to the cherry processing plant several miles away. This farm harvests 1.4 million lbs of cherries each year. Sweet cherries are best straight off the stem, sours are for my mom’s cherry pies, and dried cherries are for salads and cookies. Here is a recipe I tried last week and the whole family enjoyed!!
