My Northern Italian-born farm girl mother taught me this beverage secret from the very remote farm she was born and raised, Gemona del Friuli. Summertime fast approaches and soon cherries will be aplenty. Save your cherry stems, allow them to dry (just a couple days) and use them to make a light delicate tea. My family is on high alert at home not to throw these away.
REVIEW: You will need about 20 stems for 4 oz. of very hot water to brew for 2 minutes. The flavor can be compared to Chrysanthemum tea.
