You've caught me in the middle of a cherry bender, and in this case I've tripled-down on all things red - cold-brewed hibiscus water (easy to make), blood oranges, and plump, sweet cherries. They come together in a fantastic cherry smoothie.
A seasonal fruit salad made with plump strawberries, sweet cherries, lemon zest, and coriander brown sugar. Plus a few photos from QUITOKEETO.
There are times when I feel compelled to snap fruit salads out of dessert-land and lead them over to the savory side of the spectrum. - this salad is pluot based, with toasted ginger, garlic, and shallots. It is drizzled with a simple lime soy sauce dressing, and is generously flecked with herbs - in this case, mint, basil, and cilantro.
Dense, gooey chocolate brownies packed with boozy, port-soaked dried cherries. Made with Muscovado sugar, chocolate chunks, and crème fraiche.
A rustic, cherry cobbler recipe made from fresh cherries - though you can certainly try this recipe with other types of summer fruit and berries.
My go-to cherry tart recipe - unfussy, and quick to make with a moist, coconut macarooned top.
The flavor in this gratin recipe stops time. The almond top melds perfectly with the sweet spiked juice of the cherries. It is a perfect recipe to welcome in cherry season.
