Event Details

Coming Soon!

Cherries and chocolate are a decadent pairing in this luscious jam that will have you eating it off the spoon. Top ice cream or cheesecake, or stir into morning yogurt for a real treat!

Cherries are a sweet summertime treat, but also a great fruit to enjoy for health and nutrition. Cherries are one of the top antioxidant-rich foods, contain melatonin for a good night’s sleep, and fight inflammation and pain linked to arthritis.

One cup of cherries is less than 90 calories. That same cup of cherries has 3 grams of fiber, which aids in digestion, lowers cholesterol,controls blood sugar and can help with weight loss. Cherries are a good source of vitamin C, with 16% of the daily recommended value in 1 cup.
