Cherry Swag Bag Giveaway from Northwest Cherries

Cherries in a bowl for the cherry swag bag giveaway.

Earlier this week, I got a box containing a little over 10 pounds of sweet, ripe Northwest Cherries from Washington State. I look forward to this shipment every summer and each time it arrives, I can’t quite believe my good fortune. After all, cherries are among the most precious of the summer fruit.

These cherries come to me as part of my participation in the Canbassador program. It’s an awareness campaign that the folks from Northwest Cherries and the Washington State Fruit Commission run in order to shine a spotlight on their beautiful stonefruit!

This is my seventh year participating in their Canbassador program (wrap your mind around that one!) and over that time, I’ve developed a whole bunch of recipes featuring their fruit.

Next week, I’ll start posting my 2016 recipes, but before we get to those, I have some fun news. This year, I’m not the only one who is going to get a box of delicious cherries. One of my lovely readers is also going to get a shipment of delicious Northwest Cherries, along with a swag bag that will contain a cherry branded water bottle and Oxo cherry pitter.

This cherry swag bag giveaway has a tight turnaround because we’ve got to pick a winner before the season ends (and cherries come and go quite quickly)! Use the Rafflecopter widget below and make sure to tell your friends.

    These would obviously go into a damn fine cherry pie, to be served with coffee – hot! and black!

    I would look up cherry recipes for people with Gerd and make something for my friend who suffers from this. If I had leftovers, I would can cherry pie filling!!!

    I love cherries and everything made with cherries. I am in the process of making jam now and pitted 15 pounds of cherries. My hand looks like I’m a mechanic. Would be very grateful to win something so valuable.

    I would love to make a fresh cherry pie by America Test Kitchen’s recipe. I’ve tried their fresh peach pie just this past weekend for Father’s day.

    We would probably eat a ton and then I would make cherry preserves, pickled cherries, and cherry jam!

    Cherry jam is a family favorite! I also love the preserved whole cherries to use in manhattans.

    I have visions of mini cherry cheesecakes in individual jars. I would love to do more portion controlled desserts that are a bit fancy and seasonal.
