Before They're Gone

  Each month, the Colorado Department of Agriculture features a different product to highlight the variety and quality of products grown, raised or processed in the state. Cherries are Colorado’s first fruit crop of the season, and they are perfect for baking and cooking. Not only are they fat free and sodium free, cherries also contain other important nutrients such as beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium and fiber. Select firm, red cherries with stems attached. Avoid those that are soft, shriveled or blemished. Look for Colorado cherries at your local grocery store, farmers’ market or on the menu at restaurants across the state.
