Eat Cherries & Party Like It's 1776

Happy 4th of July weekend to my friends here in the U.S. We're heading into a 3 day weekend, and I can't wait for the fireworks, food, and fun to start. We still haven't finalized our plans for the 4th, but one thing I do know- we'll be chowing down on good old American grub shortly. Independence Day and food just go hand in hand. I thought about making an apple pie, because nothing's more American than apple pie, right? But then I thought, cherries fit with the holiday theme too. After all, Washington did chop down that cherry tree. Thankfully, he didn't chop them all down, and there's an abundance of cherries at the grocers right now. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to scrap the pie idea and make a large cherry dessert that would please a crowd. So, I scoured Golden Blossom Honey and hit the jackpot with this Cherry Crisp dessert.

This old-fashioned cherry dessert is sweet, delicious, and perfect for a crowd. Served up warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, our Founding Fathers would have celebrated this dessert, I'm sure.

  1. It's with oats? How very delightful! I bet the crispy crunch is nom nom especially with them walnuts as well. Haven't eaten cherries in God knows how long, they're here for maybe a week or so and are always expensive and unripe.... but I do love me sour cherries in pies and isn't it lovely when you grate the crumble on top?

  5. That sounds so good! I love to sweeten dishes with honey. It adds sweetness with a slightly better glycemic index.
