    Recipe: Fermented Cherries

    Fermented cherries are salty, tangy and super savory: kind of like the love child of a maraschino cherry and an olive. Which is probably why one of our favorite uses is plunked into a cocktail. If you’re looking for something sweet: make pie. But if you want to take a walk on the savory side these fermented cherries are excellent on a cheese board, as a tangy pizza topping (think white pies) and as a fun twist on a cocktail garnish.

    We wanted to find a way to get the wonderful flavors of the taqueria without, you know, the actual taco. These lacto-fermented radishes fit the bill. Sliced paper thin and brined with red onion, cilantro and jalapeño, they nail that magical cross section of flavor: tart, crunchy, bright, funky, and spicy.
