My favorite Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor is Cherry Garcia. It has chunks of chocolate and cherries in there, and oh man it is my favorite ice cream to eat on a Summer day. It really hits the spot. This ice cream you don’t need an ice cream maker to make it. The whipped cream gets beat until stiff peaks form, and you can do that with your own hands. I’ve never tried whisking my own whipping cream, but I’ve seen the chefs on tv shows like Chopped do that.

The simplicity of the recipe allows the flaky texture of the crust and juicy flavor of the cherries to shine.
28. Easy Boozy Bourbon Cherries
The recipe is so simple- just three ingredients (bourbon, sugar and cherries). I opted to use an average priced bourbon since these are mostly going to be used as cocktail garnishes.

37. Cherry Jam
So the other day I came across trays of cherries for £4 whilst out shopping which I’ve never seen before. They’re usually £2 for a tiny punnet full. I snapped up a tray and knew that they were destined to be Cherry Jam (oh and we had a few for dessert)!
38. Rosemary Cherry Balsamic Roast Chicken
I recently stumbled on a winner recently with this Roasted Cherry Balsamic Rosemary Chicken. I had chicken pieces to use, gorgeous bing cherries from the market and TONS of fresh fragrant rosemary in the garden. So as I brainstormed how to make it into dinner, this is what came from it. Golden, caramelized skin with juicy tender chicken meat flavored with sweet balsamic and cherries and the herbal rosemary. It was not only delicious and heavenly scented, but really pretty.

43. Cherry Bakewell Ice Cream
As you can guess by the name, the flavor of this ice cream is inspired by the classic British Bakewell Tart. In other words, it’s a Cherry & Almond ice cream but I can’t help but associate it with the aforementioned dessert!
