February is Cherry Month Cherries and cherry recipes seem to be filling the food pages and the minds of housewives during February. Funny, Isn't it, that the well-known anecdote about George Washington should be responsible for our turning to this delicious fruit at this season? The fathtT of our country, of course, never knew that the then trivial incident would influence the dietary habits of a country of 130,- 000.000 people. He probably would have been completely astounded and mystified had he been told that cherries were good sources of vita mins A and C, in addition to being mighty good to eat. Of course, there are many differ ent kinds of cherries. In the sweet cherries we have white ones, black ones, and red ones, and If you are horticulturally minded, the best known varieties are Royal Anne, Black Oxheart, White Oxheart, Tar- tarlans and Blgarreaus. The sour cherries are red and the best known varieties are the Montmorency and Early Richmond, and it seems to be the general beli that the cherry tree which George Washington is alleged to have chopped down was one of these varieties. Cherry pie, cherry cobbler and cherry tarts are the most common uses for red sour cherries. They are canned without the pits to make It easy for the housewife to use them, but, with added sugar they, as well as the sweet cherries, which are usually canned with the pits, make an excellent dessert fruit. Increasing quantities of the red sour cherries are now being canned in syrup for serving In this way. Some women maintain that they much prefer them for pies. Maraschino style, or cocktail cherries, used to be imported but now they are made in this country from both sweet and sour cherries In a quality and style which will fit almost every need and every purse. Of cohr.e. we don't have to eat all of our cherries in the cherry "Can She Make a Cherry Pie?" "Can she bake a cherry pie. charming Billy?" The rollicking old ballad proclaims that "she can bake a cherry pie in tne twinkling of an eye."
