Cherries are in full season here – red, pink, white, dark red, all sorts of colors are available. My favorites are the Amarena cherries, dark and slightly bitter, with plenty of flesh and juice, the kind of cherries that stain your fingertips and clothes… stains that bring many childhood memories back, the kind of stains that I don’t mind anymore. I loved climbing trees to pick these up when I was a kid and the taste of freshly made cherry jam is something that I will never forget.
During the winter months, some of us are feeling under the weather. This is why a delicious tonic packed with immune boosting properties may help us feel better during the cold winter months. I could tell you drink the tonic it is healthy, but I think it essential for you to know why. Let us examine why this turmeric ginger tonic is so good for us.
Figs plucked straight from the tree, plump, sweet and juicy, warmed by the sun. But if you have to settle, like me, for the ones from the supermarket this is a delicious way to put the sun back into them. A little honey and a sprig of thyme brings a real Mediterranean flavour to even the unripe fruit. Team that with a creamy honey and pistachio ice cream and give a last salut! to a wonderful Indian Summer.
