On an even keel…

Fresh from Eastern Washington, via our own Gregory Farm, expect to see Bing Cherries be replaced by Lapins Cherries this week. Reportedly renowned for its rich cherry flavor and big, dark purple, juicy fruit, Lapins is wonderful for fresh eating as well as drying, freezing, in jams, jellies, and sauces, too!
