Today is National Cherry Turnover Day!

Today is National Cherry Turnover Day! These tasty treats are the perfect small and portable treat to take with you or to make and enjoy with the ones you love! Did you know . . . 

It is believed the monks of the German monastery Maulbronn invented turnovers to conceal the fact of how they were eating meat during lent and Cherry turnovers originates from France like most desserts. They came from savory meat pies which were developed into desserts which could be easily carried along by workers. 

As compared to lighter cherries, darker cherries have higher levels of antioxidants. Cherries, which are one of the main ingredients of this dessert, are extremely healthy. They come packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. They are also low in calories and have great levels of antioxidants. In the U.S., over 75% of the cherries sold actually come from the state of Michigan - which is where I live, so cherries and the things you are able to do with them - such as pies and turnovers - are something with which I am familiar.
