INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH: CHERRIES

Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

Plump and glossy with a sweet, almond-like flavour, premium Tasmanian cherries from family business Hansen Orchards are in store and at their best right now.

HOW TO

Sticky, spiced cherries served with buttery tenderloin steak would make for a fitting treat on the 14th – or as a special dinner any night of the week – while a goats’ cheese and cherry salad is quick, light and extremely tasty. Of course, cherries and chocolate are a winning duo; try them in a super-simple gooey pudding, layered in easy Black Forest pots or opt for no-fuss double-dipped chocolate cherries.
