It's a very Cherry Christmas at Harris Farm and this week they are fantastic. Cherries are bursting with flavour, vitamin C and antioxidants. Grab yourself a sweet and healthy treat, perfect for a hot summers day.
HOW TO PICK
Cherries are picked from the tree, but do not continue to ripen afterwards. Make sure you choose plump glossy cherries with relatively smooth, unblemished skin and bright green stems in good condition.
HOW TO STORE
Keeping the fruit cool and dry is the secret to preserving its freshness, quality and shelf life. Store in the fridge, between 0-4 degrees, in a snap-lock bag or air-tight container.Only rinse cherries when ready to eat them, as they can absorb water and soften.
