Black cherries are my favourite summer fruit. Niagara cherries are in season here in Ontario right now. This reminds me of a conversation about food seasons that my husband and I had the other day. He pointed out that some (many?) folks no longer know their local food seasons because we go to the grocery store where food is imported from all around the world, or is grown almost all year round in greenhouses. I confess that I eat imported foods like fresh spinach in winter andmangosteens, bananas, and the occasional orange, but in spring, summer, and autumn nothing tastes better than fresh local produce that was picked just the day before. Psst: plums, peaches and nectarines are the next fruit in season.
