crixa cakes

i love (LOVE) crixa cakes. but i wish their pies were more seasonal. maybe i'm being a snob. but to have pumpkin and crabapple pies in late april seems late. and cherry seems early.

  1. Pumpkin and crabapples keep and therefore are in season although not the season when they are first picked. Cherries, especially sour cherries are preserved in some way since the season is only a couple of weeks. Any other time you get a cherry pie, it is probably from some sort of preserved cherries, frozen, canned, reconstituted dried or something.
