Super expensive cherries! – eat your kimchi gas variables pogil answers extension questions

We’re just very excited to do this video, because we love cherry season. I didn’t eat many cherries back in Canada growing up. We almost never bought them back in my home. I’d have them from time to time but I never really liked them because they were always super tart, and if I’m gonna have tart fruit I’ll go for grapefruit instead. In fact, I’d say most of the cherries I ate back home were on the tops of cakes, and I never really liked those either.

But these cherries in Japan, hoooo boyyyy. We love them. Maybe because our tastes have changed as we’ve gotten older. Younger me might not like these cherries in Japan, but I don’t see how I wouldn’t like them. The tartness that I’m used to is all but gone, only in traces on the more expensive cherries. You know, that makes me think: you sometimes hear people describe cherry flavours in wines, but it would depend what country you grew up in for that description to be useful, right?

We get cherries often here in Japan. Never big batches, and nowhere nearly as expensive. We get just small little boxes of them, then have a few after dinner as our dessert. The $10 box we got was an expensive one as well, but all that was available at that shop. Probably because they’re all from Hayashi farms, which are always steep, even in their lower end fruit. The small boxes we get are usually $4-5 or so. Still not super cheap, but not a buck a cherry, at least. Darker American cherries are available sometimes as well, but we don’t usually get those, just because we’d rather eat local than import, if we can.

Side note: the flowers I got for Martina weren’t just for softening the blow of the cost of the cherries. I regularly buy Martina flowers. Hey: if you’re in a relationship, buy stuff for the other person. It doesn’t have to be expensive stuff, like Gucci bags or whatever. Just small gestures are good enough. Those were five Gerberas I got Martina, because I know she likes Gerberas, and it’s nice to see her smile when she gets them. Do the same for your S/O.

What a delight, who knew that Japan had special eating cherries as well as special ornamental cherries? Not me, anyways ;). Those cherries have a texture that reminds me more of plum, rather than the berries that I’m used to, that might explain the thick skin and deep bite. Looks delicious. Myself, I do love cherries but not much has changed over the year with supermarket cherries here in Ontario since Martina was a kid. You really have to get cherries right from the farmer (or market) to get tasty ones because they damage easily so are often picked early to ship in a truck. The safest (but messiest) bet is to buy the buckets of cherries they sell in June because those are definitely ripe already (and de-pitted) but you get a big pail of them at once. Rainier (white/yellow) cherries are a bit sweeter but the ones grown in Canada are really a different variety, they won’t get a that honey flavour, they’re too earthy. I particularly like Morello cherries (hard to get – $50 for a medium basket at the market @ [email protected]) but not to eat straight, they make the best jam though…..Crofters make a good commercial version but they are expensive ($9 for a tiny jar). I’d really like to try some of these expensive Japanese fruit at least once, I can see why they make a good guest-gift. Flowers for no reason are the best flowers Simon, you’re so sweet!
