Here, four ways you never thought to use cherries.
This week’s Mad Genius Tips video reveals how to easily pit cherries using a chopstick and an empty wine bottle. You’ll probably eat the first few dozen pitted cherries on their own. The next batch will go to pies and other desserts. After you pit the third batch, it’ll be time to think outside the box. Here, four ways you never thought to use cherries.
In couscous. Doctoring couscous with sweet cherries, salty olives and fresh tarragon creates a speedy, delicious and interesting side dish.
In meat loaf. Cherries add a fantastic, fruity pop to this intensely flavorful and quick to prepare pork meat loaf.
