For the Love of Cherries
Getting fruit into the girls can be a struggle especially with Mia. Aly loves fruit and pretty much eats any fruit. We have always tried to encourage trying new fruits and fruits that are in season.
At the moment it is the perfect time to get yourselves some British cherries as we’re right in the middle of their season up until September.
So we’ve been enjoying cherries as much as possible. For us, they make the perfect dessert just after dinner. A simple bowl of 100g cherries provides 25% of your daily recommended allowance of vitamin C.
There are two types of people in the World, those that take the stone out perfect they eat or those that spit the stone out afterwards. Here’s a little fact that I have since learnt.
Legend has it that you can trace the route of old Roman Roads in Britain by looking out for wild cherry trees. It has been suggested that Roman legions spat out the stones from the fruit as they marched through Britain.
We’ve been enjoying out British cherries in a couple of simple ways, firstly at the weekend, we like to treat ourselves to some pancakes for breakfast. With these, we’ve been topping them with a few cut up cherries, a really easy way to get an extra portion of fruit. The second is as a small pudding after dinner. Mia has been enjoying them on their own whereas Aly has been adding a few into her yoghurt.
If you fancy making something with the delicious cherries I found this recipe on Pinterest and it looks and sounds amazing. During the Summer holidays, I think this will need to be made.
