Cherry Claufoutis
Fresh, sour cherries are the star of this Cherry Clafouti from Food Network Magazine.

Fresh cherries are at their peak May through August – don’t miss them! Debating between sweet and sour? Sweet cherries, like deep-red, heart-shaped Bing cherries, are most often eaten raw, but can also be cooked. Sour cherries are smaller and tart – they have a little too much pucker-power to eat raw but they’re the cherry of choice for cooking and baking (you’ll find them in canned cherry pie filling).

Find fresh cherries at your local farmer’s market or supermarket right now. Look for a bright color – they should be bright and glossy with plump-looking surfaces. If you’re cooking up a bowl-full, check out our cherry pitting tips.

Recipe ideas are endless, but here are our top 10 Food Network recipes that will keep your summer sweet – or sour.
