Christie’s Favourites: Cherries9

Posted on December 14, 2008 by ChristieTaste Tests

So many recipes, so little time!

I thought a good way to keep track of all the gorgeous recipes I find everyday at my favourite food blogs was to start posting a weekly round up featuring a theme ingredient.

That way I can share my discoveries with you and save a load of bookmarks for myself. Clever, huh?

If you (or I) ever want to find a particular archived ingredient in this series, the nifty little search bar in the top right hand corner will prove very helpful.

This week’s ingredient is CHERRIES.

Here we go:

  • Pickled sour cherries by the wonderful David Lebovitz sound absolutely moreish. If only they were easier to get hold of fresh here in Oz!
  • The always inspiring Jaden from Steamy Kitchen has my heart with her Persian sour cherry saffron rice. So many drool worthy ingredients in one dish should be illegal.
  • Nicole at Pinch my salt certainly got my attention with her Mini cherry cheesecakes, the photo is adorable, the way the sauce dribbles onto the plate…

Have you got a favourite cherry recipe? Leave me a link in the comments.

Happy eating, Christie
