  • About

When there are cherries in abundance, they are preserved in syrup to keep for the months ahead when they are unavailable, and to serve as a quick, delicious dessert on their own, or with vanilla ice cream. Drained of their juice, they can be used to fill a baked tart case together with pastry cream or whipped cream. See note on preserving.
