Why National Cherry Tart Day?
Cherries have a limited growing season and are found on practically every continent. Because of this, whenever fresh cherries are available, bake a cherry pie with them. The preserved and frozen cherries can be used in your tart, but they won’t taste as wonderful as fresh cherries. So begin picking cherries now so you can make the tastiest cherry tart! There is very little use of cherries; the most common dish was a cherry tart with a bottom crust and a delicious topping.
Eat the finest cherries fresh, like you would apples. Use those tart cherries and sweeten them with sugar to create a tasty tart that will please everyone.
How Can We Observe National Cherry Tart Day?
Celebrate with a genuine cherry tart—we don’t mean a cherry pie you found—but a genuine cherry tart that was either produced by your hands or the hands of an expert baker. We also advise you to pair these tarts with a great long glass of milk as these two foods go so well together. Use the hashtag #NationalCherryTartDay on your social media profiles to promote the holiday after you’ve created and enjoyed your tarts.

History of National Cherry Tart Day:
The origin of the National Cherry Festival, which is held in Michigan every year and is where 75% of the nation’s cherries are grown, is where the day got its start. Because cherries are wonderful fruits with a relatively limited growing time, the day was created and commemorated. Therefore, it is not surprising that the fruit has become a seasonal favorite in many parts of the country.
Prior to the 1600s, when early French settlers planted cherry trees in their gardens, cherries were not native to the United States. When Peter Dougherty, a missionary, planted cherry trees in Old Mission Peninsula in 1852, things began to change. The concept of trees producing fruit was unfathomable at the time. But everyone was shocked to see how well the cherry crop did. When the local neighbors noticed this, they too started to plant cherry trees. The first cherry orchards were planted in Michigan in 1893 as a result, marking the start of the current cherry industry.
The cherry industry quickly took off, reaching new heights in the 1900s. Currently, the United States produces over 650 million pounds of cherries, the majority of which are used to create delectable desserts. The history of tarts, when the delicacy was invented, and how the recipe has changed through time are all explored on this day.
You may bake cherry tarts at home or enjoy selecting one from a bakery or confectionary in your neighborhood. Invite friends around for tea on this Day, and serve them a slice. Alternately, serve this delectable dessert prominently after your main meal on the top shelf of the dessert cart, which is its proper spot. Make your sweet buds happy!
