Pop that Cherry
Some cherries are so tart, it hurts to eat them.
While I like a little masochism here and there,
their intensity can overwhelm the delicate flavors in artisan cheese.
Gently roasting tart cherries teases out their sweetness and softens their texture.
They make soft bries and chèvres taste like cheesecake
and play off the fruity notes in aged goat goudas like Midnight Moon.
They’re also striking and luscious atop this Mascarpone Chèvre Tart.
