Whether you love these tart, sweet, or black, cherries really are what should be on top.
Maybe you’re thinking maraschino, and that is a great choice as well. Whatever your cherry preference, simply savoring this red delight means having a bite of something simply sublime. We love these in pies, tarts, and jams. Begin your evening with Cherry-Pecan Brie: it blends the sweetness of fruit, the crunchiness of nuts, and the creaminess of a rich, bold, ripe cheese. Next, try some Cherry Frost, which is a great holiday libation to get everyone in the mood to enjoy themselves— a little black cherry liqueur goes a long way.
We love the decadent delights of a Chocolate-Covered Cherry Pie almost as much as we enjoy a plain slice of the pie itself. Or, when you want to explore the beauty of fruit blends, enjoy the flavors and aromas of Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Cherry-Apple Chutney. For the holiday season there will literally be a cherry on top of a glass of Jingle Juice, and when you go back to serve seconds accompany them with a bowl of Orange-and-Basil Macerated Cherries. Savor every bite of these delights.
