Honey Pickled Cherries

Quick pickles are a great tool in a fine dining chef’s arsenal. They help balance the richness of heavy dishes from humble sandwiches & burgers to upscale dishes like duck confit & seared foie gras. They’re actually really easy to make too!

Here we’ve pickled bing cherries in a mixture of honey, vinegar & thyme – we paired these cherries with foie gras, but they’d also be a nice match for duck or venison.

Honey Pickled Cherries
INGREDIENTS
  • 3/4lb Bing Cherries, halved & pitted
  • 1 tbsp Wildflower Honey
  • 1/3 cup Honey Wine Vinegar
  • ½ cup Ice Water (mostly ice)
  • 10 sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 2 tsp Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Salt

DIRECTIONS

1

Combine the honey vinegar, sugar, salt, honey & thyme in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook just until the honey is melted. Make sure the thyme is submerged.

2

Add the ice water & swirl to melt in the ice.

3

Once the mixture is cold, pour it over the cherries.

4

Move the mixture to the fridge (make sure the cherries are submerged) for at least an hour before using.
