If you know and love sour cherries, you also know that the season is oh-so-short. And so precious. Sour cherries are also sometimes referred to as "pie cherries" or "tart cherries" and are so delicate and perishable that you generally won't find them in your neighborhood grocery store. They're most common in Michigan or Wisconsin although we've spotted them in the Northwest and Northeast when the time is right--usually late June. For some reason this year, sour cherries are popping up even earlier and we thought we'd get a head start on a few of our favorite recipes from the Kitchn archives as well as some new favorites from around the web.
