Missing Seattle #3: Rainer Cherries Megapost

Both CS and I have written in the past about the things we love to eat and drink and let me add another, Rainer Cherries. Without a doubt, this is the single food item I will miss the most about leaving the Northwest. They are only in season for a few summer weeks each year and I buy them like they are going out of style. Technically they are a combination of Bing and Van cherries and their flavor is the perfect mix of sweet and tart. I am seriously considering figuring out how to get some sent to Lawrence next summer.
