This apple cherry dessert recipe is just like grandma used to make, full of red tart cherries and apples in a dessert recipe the whole family will love. Apples are a great addition to simple apple desserts, with raw apples eaten with the skin being the healthiest way to eat them as they are full of dietary fiber and vitamin C, with lesser amounts of iron. According to the Environmental Working Group, apples are part of the dirty dozen fruits and vegetables that are heavily sprayed. That is why it's always a good idea to purchase spray free apples or certified organic apples when possible. Cherries, if you are using fresh are also on the EWG's list the dirty dozen, so they are also best to buy organic if you can. If this is not an option, be sure at least to wash your fruits in cold water with about 1/4 cup white vinegar in the water. Let them soak for about 10-15 minutes then remove to a dry clean tea towel to air dry. This quick and easy apple dessert are a great addition to family gatherings and picnics. You can print this recipe and make it after a visit to the farmers market; you can also substitute different fruits to suit what is in season.**

1-14.5 ounce can red tart cherries in water, drained
