It's cherry season at United Supermarkets and Brenda Garcia with United Supermarkets sat down with us today to talk about the great health benefits of cherries.

Garcia said that cherries make a great, healthy snack in addition to different ways you can use them like on salads and of course pies. Garcia said that this is a great time of year to try cherries if you haven't in a while and that you can get recipes for cherries at HappyandNourished.com.

Garcia says not only do they taste great, but they are an excellent source of potassium and work as an anti-inflammatory.

One extra tip Garcia had for us, you can freeze cherries up to 6 months as long as they are in a freezer safe bag.
