Cherry and orange sweet treat

Who knew a recipe this simple could taste so good? Freezing cherries during harvest season—which typically begins by mid-May—allows you to enjoy them year-round and also gives the dish a sorbet-like texture.

The Nutrition Professor's Shop Smart, Prep Smart Tips:

  • Once pitted, cherries freeze well in a heavy-duty zip-top bag.
  • Because walnuts are rich in essential fats, they can go rancid when kept at room temperature for an extended time. It is best to store them in the freezer.
