Today I would like to share with you not recipes, but instead, recommendations. Sometimes on hot evenings after a long day, it’s hard to focus on ingredients for a particular recipe. So you choose what looks fresh, what seems easy, what smells delicious.
Here is the first recommendation I will share today for making your summer weeknights a little sweeter and simpler.
What did I pick up at the grocery store? You guessed it – round, red, plump cherries.
The first way I incorporated these cherries into a cozy evening meal with K was in a tall pitcher of elderflower juice.
If you’ve never tried elderflower juice before, then a) you aren’t Danish, and b) you’re seriously missing out. K and I went elderflower picking a few weeks ago to make our very own elderflower concentrate, and that muddled with a handful of cherries and topped off with fresh water and ice, made the perfect summer evening refreshment.
Like I said before, I don’t want to share recipes today – just recommendations.
So for starters, I recommend that you crush some fresh berries or fruit into your beverage this evening – be it a glass of ice water, juice, martini, you name it! Take it or leave it – but nothing says summer quite like fresh fruit in the bottom of your glass.
More recommendations coming up later… I hope you’ll keep your ears open!
