Cherries Jubilee Recipe
The Co-op is well stocked on ripe cherries grown in New York state. Sweet Dark Rainier and Sweet Light Rainier cherries to be exact! What better way to celebrate the sweet summer harvest, then by creating a simple, yet impressive Cherries Jubilee sauce.
Crimson in hue, this classic sauce is traditionally spooned over a dessert such as ice cream or pound cake. Its refreshing flavor will be sure to impress guests after a nice, hearty meal.
It’s customary to flambe the sauce by adding brandy and then touching it with a flame. This particular recipe is simpler and doesn’t include this step, but is delicious just the same. Prepared on the stovetop in just a few minutes, you won’t need any fancy baking or cooking skills to pull this one off!
Created in the 1800s in honor of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee celebration, there is a reason it’s still made and savored to this day! You truly can’t go wrong with this old, but certainly staple sauce for summer desserts.
