Flavoured gin or sweet frangipane? Readers share their favourite ways to put a glut of cherries to good use
I rent a cherry tree on a farm in Northiam, East Sussex. Each year we are given a week to harvest the cherries from our tree, so we make a day of it with a picnic nearby. The tree looks small, but last year we harvested 15kg in one day. We make jam, pies, ice-cream and liqueurs; we give away some then freeze the rest after stoning them. This means we have a year-round supply of my favourite cocktail: frozen cherry margarita. I can’t drink tequila so I swap it for vodka. The result is delicious and very moreish, so be warned!
