Cherries and Cheese Please

Cherries and Cheese Please

Recipe by Chef Rose Johnson

Servings: 2-4


  • 2 lbs fresh juicy cherries, washed and gently dried, keeping stems on.
  • I take the pits out of mine so the cheese can get inside the cherries and guests don’t have to spit the pits out.
  • ½ lb Swiss Cheese ( Jarlsberg, Gruyére )
  • ¼ lb cheese of choice ( whatever bits and pieces of good cheeses kicking around)
  • 1/2 cup semi-dry white wine
  • 2 Tbs Corn Starch
  • 1 Tbs Cherry Cordial
  • Pinch Nutmeg
  • Pinch Cinnamon
  • Pinch fresh ground pepper


  • In a large bowl, mix grated cheeses, corn starch, wine, spices-
  • Melt over low heat, right before the cheeses are completely melted, add the cherry cordial.
  • Stir gently, pull off the heat source and commence dunking of cherries immediately.
