What can i do with cherries?


Recommended Posts

I got some cherries at the farmer's market on saturday, but when I went to eat some, I noticed that most of them are over-ripe. They aren't to the point of being rotten, just many have bruises and are softer than I like to eat (I'm very picky about texture, I hate mushy fruit). Are there any whole30-approved recipes out there that use fresh cherries?

I frequently add dried cranberries with a little apple cider vinegar to chard or kale when I am wilting it. I like the sweet-tartness. I bet you could use fresh cherries too. I would cook a handful of chopped onion in a wok or large skillet. Season with salt and garlic powder. Add fresh greens. Season with salt, garlic powder, and something sweet like Chinese five spice powder. Splash with apple cider vinegar. Scatter some cherries on top and let everything wilt/cook together for at least 5 minutes if covered. Maybe a few minutes longer if open (and heat can escape).


I used to cut up a few apples and mix them with a can of pineapple chunks. You could add cherries to such a mix and I bet it would be good.

I tried the cherry bbq sauce from nomnompaleo before I started my whole30, it was ok, but i felt like it was missing something...it wasn't tangy or spicy or sweet enough...I dunno. I feel like I'd have to make it really non-compliant to make it to my liking. the BBQ sauce from ISWF was much better, but I still felt like that needed some molasses or brown sugar.


Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I'll see what I can come up with :)

I had a cherry and onion saute the other day that was great.


tablespoons olive oil
2 large onions, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups fresh cherries, pitted
2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high
heat. Cook onion and garlic 6 minutes, stirring
frequently. Add cherries, reduce heat to low,
and cook 6 minutes or until softened. Stir in
