  • About

This dish originated in Turkestan. It eventually migrated to Bulgaria, where it evolved into a traditional preparation for pheasant. Use fresh sour cherries when they’re in season: they require no soaking, just pitting. But this dish is so tasty you’ll probably crave it in January, in which case sun-dried cherries make a great substitute.
