As an Orchard member I was looking forward to trying the summer fruits and wondered how to use them a bit differently. I am succeeding in losing weight and wanted to add interest to a recipe but not calories. I tried various herbs and spices before discovering rosemary went really well with the Spanish cherries.
Take some soft young tips of fresh rosemary from your herb pot and crush until the juice flows - a small mortar and pestle is good. Save some rosemary sprigs to garnish
Add about 100g of Soya Natural to the rosemary and mix. You could leave it in the fridge to infuse while you prepare the cherries but it is not essential
Prepare the cherries - remove stones and roughly chop (quarters), save all the lovely sweet juice. Save a few to garnish
Discard the rosemary in the Soya Natural and mix all the Soya Natural together, adjusting quantities to taste. You are aiming for a very subtle rosemary flavour
Fold in the cherries and divide into four portions. Garnish each with rosemary sprigs and a few cherries
The intense sweetness and flavour of the Picota cherries works really well with the slightly nutty tasting Soya Natural and the warmth of the rosemary. Can be prepared in advance and left in the fridge until ready to serve. A really adult dessert and low in calories too.
