Whether it’s a simple blanket unfurled on your back lawn with a picnic spread grabbed hither and thither from your pantry and fridge, or a pull-out-all-the-stops celebration with a carefully planned menu to match, it’s really all about recognizing the patriotic spirit of the occasion when it comes to celebrating July 4th. It’s about extending a thoughtful nod to the day… with food, fun, friends, and family… and a good little bit of red, white and blue thrown in for good measure.
When faced with creating a little sweet for the 4th using Stemilt’s beautiful cherries, all I could think about was how delicious they are in their natural state… so fresh, plump, and sweet. Afterall, with their vibrant ruby hue you're already a third of the way to representing the day’s requisite pop of red, white and blue!
With some melted white chocolate and a delicate tipping of periwinkle sugar, these fresh little cherries easily transform to patriotic little pops of flavor… dressed up in all their glory for the revelries of the day.
