Rainier Cherries for Mr.W

Yesterday was my dear husband's birthday. And do you know what he wanted above anything else?

Rainier Cherries.

These golden orbs are in season now; although they're more expensive than the more common Bing variety, I can find them at their most reasonable price now. In my humble opinion, these are the tastiest cherry ever--and Mr.W shares my opinion, which is why he chose this as his birthday gift.



Maybe he's a foodie-in-the-making after all.

Mr. W said...

Well thank you Grace! Luckily for us they were half the price they were last year.

Your husband is an easy person to shop for!

Kathy said...

He has a lot of potential! :)

Sam said...

Your husband obviously has good taste, Rainier cherries are delicious!

That said I'm not sure they're what I'd want for my birthday!

Grace--me, too; I told him to check here and he saw your good wishes!

Naomi--I agree, he is. At least around his birthday (the season for these cherries). Christmas is a whole other story! :)

Kathy--true.

Sam--really? No fruit as a birthday gift for you? Hehe... another friend gave him sugar plums, because she knows he loves them, too.

Y'all should understand that Mr.W is generally such a picky eater that him liking any fruit is pretty much a miracle. We encourage it as much as possible, as you can see!

I love those cherries as well ;)

Hi, Margot! I think everyone who has tried these little gems must love them... who wouldn't?

I recently saw a show that explained that maraschino cherries are made from this rainier variety. Seems a shame to me.
