Go hop, I told you so so I do, I keep my recipes for the cherry and this time, it’s with cherries in syrup house at the thyme that we’re going to treat us, on this first day of the month of July ! It really is a simple recipe to make (as often on this blog) and you can eat it alone, with a good yoghurt, or even with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it’s like you want to.

I love everything especially the cherries to the syrup as I ate every summer holidays at my grand-mother. She opened a small jar and loved the taste, just like that, without anything. Good, often, they were allowed a little cookie, yes, it was the bonus…
Ah the childhood memories, there is nothing of the sort, don’t you think !?

I added a little thyme to flavor the syrup, but if you prefer, you are not obliged to put, as always, you can adapt the recipe to your taste… ��
