Cherries in February

Portably delicious and sweet, cherries are low in calories and chock full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and that sweet-tart flavor that bursts in your mouth with every bite. Help us celebrate National Cherry Month by submitting your favorite recipes using cherries of all kinds! While most of us think about sweet and juicy cherries being used in desserts, you would be surprised how well they can work in savory dishes. Help us gather cherry-themed dishes of all kinds that are sure to have people looking forward to a bumper crop of cherries this upcoming summer. The person submitting the recipe judged best will be named “Cook of the Month” for the February issue of The Cooperator and receive $10. Others sending in recipes chosen for publication will receive $5, and each winner will also receive a special “What’s Cookin’?” certificate.

Monday, December 27, is the deadline for cherry recipes.

Don't forget: Only recipes that include complete, easy-to-follow instructions will be considered for publication. Several recipes are disqualified because they do not contain all the information that we feel we needed to prepare the dishes successfully. Recipes featured in "What's cookin'?" are not independently tested, so we must depend on the accuracy of the cooks sending them. Always use safe food-handling, preperation, and cooking procedures.

Send your entries to: Recipes, Tennessee Cooperator, P.O. Box 3003, LaVergne, TN 37086. You can submit more than one recipe in the same envelope.  You can also e-mail recipes to:

Be sure to include your name, address, telephone number, and the Co-op with which you do business. It's important that your Co-op be included because we want to give it recognition if your recipe is printed. Recipes that appear in the "What's cookin'?" column will also be published on Tennessee Farmers Cooperative's Web site at
