Sour cherry pie
Summer brings a bounty of fresh fruit, and one of the most treasured is the sour cherry. Also called tart cherries, these ruby-red beauties first appear in July, and their season is fleeting. Unlike sweet cherries, which are often enjoyed straight-up, sour cherries are thin-skinned, brightly coloured and have a unique, zingy flavour that makes them unbeatable for baking—especially in pies.
