The Cherry on Top
Modern lifestyle advice with a Traditional Chinese Medicine twist
Going to post today about cherries which are now in season, a good percent are grown in Kent.
In West Berkshire you can pick them at Q Gardens Fam Shop.
They taste great fresh, roasted or baked in a cake. The food nature of a cherry is warm and its flavour is sweet. (pretty obvious ) Cherries nourish qi & blood. They regulate blood and warm blood as well as reducing 'wind damp cold'?! This can be translated as helping with a common cold which has no heat symptoms. (e.g. yellow phlegm).
Idea: bake 400 g of cherries at 180' with 3 tbsp of maple syrup and 4 rosemary sprigs for 30 - 40 minutes. Upon removal squeeze 1/2 a lemon. Serve with yogurt, ice cream or goats cheese.
