On September 24th National Cherries Jubilee Day serves up a tasty dessert. To make this incredible dish, fresh cherries are cooked in a sweet sauce into which warmed liqueur, usually kirsch or fruit brandy, is mixed and set alight. As if that wasn’t delicious enough, the mixture is then spooned over a chilled bowl of vanilla ice-cream while still burning with a blue flame.

Cherries jubilee was first served at one of the jubilee celebrations of Queen Victoria and the popularity for the dessert skyrocketed during her reign.
