National Rainier Cherries Day - July 11
Friday, July 11th
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo Produce Dept,

In 1952 at Washington State University, Harold Fogle created a new cherry by cross-breeding the Bing and Van cherry varieties. This new cherry was named after Mount Rainier. Now, each year on July 11, it is National Rainier Cherry Day.

Rainier cherries are sweet cherries that have a thin skin and a thick creamy-yellow flesh. They are a temperamental crop that are very sensitive to temperature, wind and rain. Each season almost one-third of their crop is eaten by birds.

Due to their superior taste, Rainiers are considered a
premium cherry.

As part of it’s Tree-to-Table program, on July 11, in honor of National Rainier Cherry Day, the Northwest Cherry Growers have hand-picked one restaurant in each state that will take part in their program in which each of the 50 restaurants will be dishing up at least one signature menu item featuring fresh cherries from the Northwest highlighting delicious Rainier cherries.

National Pecan Pie Day - July 12
Saturday, July 12th
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo Bakery,

National Pecan Pie Day is annually celebrated on July 12.

The delicious pecan pie is made primarily with corn syrup, pecan nuts, salt and vanilla flavoring with some variations including sugar syrup and molasses or maple syrup. Chocolate and bourbon whiskey may also be added to the pie recipe and is a popular addition in some areas. Pecan pie is often served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Pecan pie is considered a specialty of Southern U.S. cuisine.

The attempts that have been made to trace this dish’s origin have not found any recipes dated earlier than 1897, even though there are claims made of the pie existing in the early 1800′s in Louisiana. Well known cookbooks such as Fannie Farmer and The Joy of Cooking did not include this desert until 1940.

Pecan pie was significantly popularized by the makers of Karo syrup. Their company has claimed that the pie was a “discovery”, in the 1930′s, by a corporate sales executive’s wife, as a “new use for corn syrup”.
