DESSERTS Boozy Cherries

Boozy Cherries

Cherries were once a rare treat but now they have become more affordable when they are in season. Buy a few punnets at a time and make our boozy cherries to eat for dessert with Greek yogurt or serve them as part of a cheese board with a runny piece of Brie de Meaux which is in season at the same time. Our boozy cherries last for 2 weeks if you store them in a sealed container in the fridge.

DESSERTS Caramel and Chocolate Sauce

A Rich Velvety Caramel and Chocolate Sauce

Is this the most delicious sauce in the world to pour over icecream? It’s up there with the best. Make it in advance and store it in a kilner jar or empty Bonne Maman jar in the fridge ready to cheer you up when you need a sugar hit. Spread it on sourdough toast, drizzle it over warm buttermilk pancakes or waffles, spoon it over thick Greek yogurt or sour cream or layer it between a Victoria sponge with fresh cream or buttercream. You could just eat it by the spoonful from the jar and lick the spoon clean.

America: Whoopie Pies

‘This cake-like chocolate sandwich cookie started showing up in bakeries and lunchboxes in the 1920s,’ says Gabrielle Langholtz in her new book America, ‘and both Maine and Pennsylvania claim it as their own. It gets its name from the reception it gets when it is served. A whoopie pie can be as big as a hamburger. Serve with a glass of cold milk.’

Lemon and Lime Ice Cream

A refreshing ice cream. If you want it to have a lemon or lime green colour you’ll need to add the tiniest drop of yellow or green food colouring as you only use the fruit zest to flavour it.
