The Diva That Made Pickled Cherries

Jackie Gordon Singing Chef - The Diva That Made Pickled Cherries

Gotta love cherry season! There’s nothing like munching on a big bowl of those fresh beauties!

I had a cherry-based dessert at Gotham Bar & Grill recently. I remember thinking that it would have been better with sour cherries because sweet cherries lack the deep cherry flavor and tang that I love.

That got me thinking about adding the tang back into sweet cherries. What if you made them a little sour by pickling them? As it turned out, they are STUNNING!  PLUS, you get to have cherries in the winter.

Jackie Gordon Singing Chef - Diva Does Dukkah

I rediscovered “dukkah”, a delicious and highly versatile treat when I was back in Australia in August 2010. I have never made or even seen it on a menu here in the states. It’s easy to make and delicious to just eat with bread and fruity olive oil or to accent or spice up any number of dishes. It’s originally from Egypt and translated the word “dukkah” means to pound.
