Cherries are rounded with a slight heart shape and a dimple at stem end. The skin of a cherry is thin and deep red with a brilliant shine. The cherry’s flavor is pleasantly sweet-tart, similar to with resemblance to plum, raspberry and blackberry. Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment inherently found within berries. Anthocyanins are potent antioxidants that are being researched for their potential health benefits, including anti-inflammation and pain reduction. Cherries are also a good source of vitamins A and C, calcium and iron. Cherries are incredibly versatile in both sweet and savoury dishes of all kinds. You can use them for your desserts where the cherries become the star of the dish or even in savoury application with white or dark meat to give it an extra deep red color and strong fruity flavor.
