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, and peaked in the middle of the 20th century. September 24th is a great occasion to join the army of food connoisseurs and enjoy its taste.
- According to statistics, cherries are one of the favorite berries in the United States. Proof of this is the hundreds of dishes with cherries – salads, pastries, sauces, meat dishes, snacks, and drinks.
- The dish is not only very tasty, but also spectacular – it is served ablaze, which does not affect the taste in any way, but only caramelizes the berries, while maintaining a pleasant aftertaste of brandy or liquor.
- Ice cream is another favorite dessert of Americans and it is present in this dish. In combination with caramelized cherries and light alcohol, it is almost perfect, giving an explosion of taste.
How to take part
Prepare your favorite dessert. Use the ice cream that gives you the most positive emotions – like chocolate, or pistachio. If you want to enjoy impeccable service, go to a cafe or restaurant. Organize a party and offer guests a treat that will win them over.
