Cherries. They really are very good for you. Sweet, sour, even the most popular maraschino cherries. Why? Cherries are full of good nutrients: Vitamin A and C, Manganese, Potassium, Copper and Vitamin K (a not-so-well known vitamin, but it should be as it helps deal with blood clots). The Vitamin K component makes cherries useful in reducing the risk of stroke. Cherries are also good to reduce belly fat and help one sleep, and much more. So enough technical data. How can we preserve cherries, use them in our everyday diet, bake and cook with them? Well, actually, let the imagination run wild, because cherries go with just about anything and can be used in both sweet foods and savory dishes.

Vickianne Caswell has the cherry book for everyone: The Ultimate Cherry Cookbook. It’s full of useful tips and information about cherries as well as, most important, lots of cherry recipes. There are the alcoholic cherry drinks and the non-alcoholic ones; brownies, cookies, cakes and more; pies and compotes; and glazes for meat, pork, and poultry. And then there’s breakfast breads, muffins and cereals; and, for the really sweet tooth, candies, ice creams and sorbets. Oh yes, and there are soups, too. Each section of this book is well laid out. The ingredients for each recipe are easy to obtain and the recipe itself is easy to follow. Some of the recipes have nutritional guidelines, including calorie counts. This book is definitely the ‘ultimate’ in fine cherry cuisine. And the list of possibilities is endless.
