Cherry baby

This month, The Grazer, aka Anna Hedworth of Cook House, Ouseburn, Newcastle, is mostly eating cherries

It’s cherry season! I love cherries, being particularly partial to a black cherry ice cream, a maraschino cherry at the bottom of a strong cocktail, cherries in a bakewell, or morello cherry jam on toast. There are big boxes of cherries in the Grainger Market for £2 at the moment, so it really would be rude not to…

So I thought I’d share two simple recipes. The cherry and almond cake is my take on a bakewell, in simple form.

The pickled cherries, meanwhile, are inspired by a Diana Henry recipe. They go very well with a plate of cheese and are also good with things like chicken liver paté, terrines and cured meats. Enjoy cherry season while it lasts…
