Go foraging for wild cherries they are now in season – you will find them in city parks and the glorious British countryside. But don’t delay, the season is all too brief. If you are not sure where to look – take a tip from His Majesty and study the ground for the bright crimson, juicy stains left by the birds who got there first. Look up, and you will almost certainly be standing underneath a wild cherry tree. Pile into a beautiful bowl or glass, serve with organic Greek yoghurt or cream and share with someone you love. They taste a thousand times better than the shop bought variety.
Tip – Look out for the deepest red to black cherries, as you pick they they will come away in your fingers and stain your hands, these are ripe and ready to eat or turn into a favourite recipe.
