Marsala Wine Cherries
Ciliegie al Marsala
Marsala wine cherries can be served as an irresistible, home-made, fruity companion to ice cream, whipped cream or panna cotta. A real treat.
In Denmark preserved cherries are bought ready-made and served with the traditional rice pudding for Christmas. In fact, it had never occurred to me to use them for a summer dessert, until I came across a mountain of cherries fresh from the tree. They had to be eaten, of course, and one of the best ways was to make Marsala wine cherries the Venetian way and serve them as a fruity companion to ice cream, whipped cream or panna cotta. A real treat.
