National Cherries Jubilee Day

National Cherries Jubilee Day is dedicated to a delicious dessert, appreciated for its exquisite, slightly heady taste. The recipe is an old one. Initially, cherries were boiled in sugar syrup, and when served, brandy was added and set on fire for greater entertainment. Today, the treat is served with ice cream, but the spectacular flame has remained unchanged.


The dessert was served for the first time on the anniversary of Queen Victoria. Since that time, the popularity of the treat increased, peaking in the middle of the 20th century. September 24th is a great occasion to join the army of food connoisseurs and enjoy its taste.
