The Instacart guide to cherries

About cherries

Archaeological evidence shows that cherries have been around since prehistoric times, but the cherries that we are familiar with came to American in the 1600s. There are over 1,000 different varieties of cherries, but all fall into two major categories: sweet and sour. Most sweet cherries are grown in California, Oregon, and Washington, while tart cherries usually come from Michigan and Wisconsin. Sweet cherries are made to eat fresh as a healthy snack, while tart cherries are for cooking and baking because they will hold their shape better when cooked. The tartness also makes it easier for bakers to adjust the sweetness level of their baked goods. 

Some of the most common types of cherries that you will come across include:

FAQs About Cherries

Cherries have a high concentration of plant compounds, which help provide many health benefits. The benefits vary depending on the cherry, but all varieties are full of vitamins and minerals and high in antioxidants, which help fight oxidative stress. Moreover, cherries are high in anti-inflammatory compounds that can help relieve sore muscles due to exercise or other factors. 

Cherries have pits, which you need to remove before eating them. If you have a cherry pitter, it makes the process easier. You can just remove the stem by twisting it off and then place the cherry on its side into the pitter. Press down the clamp and then release it to get the pit out. 

If you don't have a pitter, you can use a chopstick and a bottle. Remove the stem, place the cherry on top of an empty bottle, and use the chopstick's smaller end to push the pit out the other side of the cherry.

Shop for sweet snacking cherries and tart baking varieties through the Instacart app. If you need a pitter or chopsticks, don't forget to add these to your cart too.
