National Cherries Jubilee Day
Thursday, September 24, 2020. National Cherries Jubilee Day. Originally, the cherries were simply poached in a sugary syrup and served with warm brandy, which was set on fire for a dramatic presentation as it was served to guests. Today it is often served over vanilla ice cream set on fire.
Cherries jubilee was first served at one of the jubilee celebrations of Queen Victoria and was considered a very fashionable dessert to serve to guests.
