They may be expensive, highly perishable, and a little tricky to find, but it’s not summer without them: sour cherries! ‘Tis the season, and we’re celebrating in classic Spilled Milk style, with milkshakes, pickles, and puns.
Great show. Now I want a milkshake!

You are soooooo welcome in my tree house….stop by the next time you are visiting Vashon.
You are so lucky, these are so rare in Australia, I’ve never seen them fresh, but have only heard of one grower. I adore sour cherry jam and the dried babies.
