Iowa Ingredient: Cherries

Every summer, in a particularly narrow window of time here in Iowa, Mother Nature puts on her apron and cooks up a colorful, tart treat cherries. Great in pies, jams and cakes, sour cherries don’t usually make it to the grocery store shelves because of their short shelf life and delicate nature. But you can find them at farmers markets or pick them yourself. On this Iowa Ingredient, join host Charity Nebbe as we visit Allen’s Orchard in Marion to learn more about cherries grown in Iowa. Then chef Josh Overbeck from Gary’s on the River in Spencer will come up with some sweet and tart ways to cook with cherries.
