If life delivers a bowl of cherries to your table then I would suggest that you sink your teeth into their luscious juiciness without the addition of other ingredients.
The other evening, however, I was nibbling a few cherries, an oatcake and some pecorino in a rather absentminded way. Suddenly I realised what a lovely combination cheese and cherries are together.
As I had some Feta cheese in the fridge I decided to experiment with its soft, salty texture and see how it worked with the sweet cherries.
This is what I came up with…….
Stone the cherries and use an apple corer to produce little cylinders of cheese. Cut the cheese cylinders in half and slide them into the centre of the cherry.
Pop into your mouth and enjoy the intense explosion of sweet, salty and creamy flavours.
This is the perfect nibble to have with a glass of something chilled on a warm evening.
