Cherries and Chow Chow
These are from my weekend in Reading, Pennsylvania. My family found the cherries at a local farmers market. Sweet Ranier cherries, too delicious to do anything but eat them raw. The whole quart disappeared in about 20 minutes. I spotted some sour cherries at my Dupont Circle market the weekend before. Are you seeing any cherries in your neck of the woods?
I also picked up a jar of chow chow while I was in PA, a sweet pickle mix of peppers, beans, corn, baby onions and other vegetables that you can find all over that part of the USA. I can't wait to dig into it!
