Washington and His Cherry Tree
George Washington knew cherries are delicious, that’s why he had a cherry tree! Cherries don’t just taste good, though; they are a source of dietary fiber, vitamin C and antioxidants.
This time of year when cherries aren’t in season, enjoy them frozen. Research shows frozen and canned foods can be as nutritious as fresh. Frozen fruits come in both sweetened and unsweetened varieties, so make sure to check the label and choose unsweetened.
