Blogging from A-Z • H • Husk cherry


Today is brought to you by the letter "H"!

(Disclaimer: Although this is typically a blog about my beadwork, I do let other parts of my life seep into this blog.  Food and beverage is a huge part of my life as I am the marketing director of a fantastic restaurant group!)

H is for garlic and also for husk cherry! 

Similiar in character to a cherry tomato, these lovely little fruits grow in a little husk paper shell.  They are mild and sweet and work in dishes as well as a tomato or a berry, and as you will see below, because of their unusual appearance, our chefs also like to use them as a fun hors d'oeuvres plate garnish!

Husk cherry as a garnish! 
Husk cherry trio on micro greens as a garnish! 

Husk cherry flatbread with fried sage and a ricotta goat cheese spread! 

Husk cherry vinaigrette on a duck breast entree! 
Um...yes please....poundcake with black raspberry, husk cherry compote, and honey ice cream!



Come back tomorrow to see what we have in store for the letter "I"!
