Cherries are delicious fruit eaten fresh or stewed for 5–10 minutes in sugar syrup, flavoured with a piece of cinnamon stick, lemon peel, and with a little brandy stirred in before they cool. They have a very short season and are worth preserving so you can enjoy them later in the year. One of the best ways to do this is by preserving them in brandy, when they can be used over ice cream, and the brandy syrup folded through whipped cream or stirred into fruit salad or fruit desserts to give a rich flavour.

Rancin: Line an ovenproof dish with thinly sliced white bread and butter. Fill nearly to top with cherries which have been pitted and cooked for a few minutes with plenty of sugar. Do not add any of the syrup. Cover with a second layer of bread and butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a preheated hot oven for about 20 minutes or until the top is golden and crisp. Dust with caster or sifted icing sugar and serve warm with cream. Brioche or any rich yeast bread (see separate entries) may be used in place of white bread.
