In the Cherry Capital of the World, July is the sweetest (and tartest) month of all. Here are three ways to celebrate Traverse City’s favorite fruit.
Nutty Mother Munson Bars
The menu changes daily at this self-serve cookie stand (menu on Instagram; Venmo or cash), but Katie Otterman’s “Mother Munson” bars make regular appearances. The chewy blonde brownies are brimming with pecans, dark chocolate chips and local dried cherries. Follow on Instagram for a special cherry-licious treat Otterman is dreaming up for the week of National Cherry Festival ( July 2–9).
