Veggie/ Fruit A Month- Cherries

I'm happy to announce the Veggie/ Fruit A Month event here in Taste Of Pearl City. First I would like to thank Priya of  Mahro Rajasthan's Recipes  who gave me this opportunity to host her event. This event is started by Priya,  according to the event, every month any one fruit or vegetable will be chosen as a star ingredient to prepare recipes using that.  This month the featured fruit is  Cherry. Cherries are found in abundant in  markets during summer particularly in European countries.
   The majority of eating cherries are derived from  Prunus avium( sometimes called the sweet cherry)  or  Prunus cerasus ( the sour cherry). Cherry enriched diet lowers your body fat especially the belly fat. It lowers the risk of all heart related disease. In general cherries are known to lower the cholestrol level in your body.
Cherries also reduce the inflammation, to read more about cherries click here and here.
 As long as I lived in India the only cherry which I was  very familiar is glaced  cherries. First time when I visited UK i got a chance to taste this sweet fruit, after that  it became a regular  fruit in our diet.  There are enormous amount of recipes you can prepare using this fruit, you can also use this fruit in raw form in your recipes like salad. You can also use this fruit in any form like fresh, dried, canned or frozen.

You can also use this fruit in any savoury dish if you wish.  Here are some of the few criteria which you have to follow:
Criteria For The Event:
1. Prepare any dish using Cherry as your  star  ingredient. From to starter to dessert  you can prepare any recipes, it can also be in the raw form in the recipe.
2. Please don't use alcohol and it's derivatives( like wine, beer etc..), animal gelatine or pork in your recipe.
3.I would also like to have only new posts, no old posts so that you can try making recipes using that fruit now.
4. Link back to this announcement page and also to Priya's event announcement page. I would really appreciate if you can include the logo in your posts.

Best of luck Ayeesha on the event. Will surely participate. I don't usually cook with cherries, so this will give me an encouragement to use cherries in my daily diet. That is what I love about this fruit :)
