Method

  • Remove the stalks from the cherries. Wash well.
  • Stone the cherries by cutting in half to remove it, or use a cherry stoner.
  • Wash the strawberries. Remove the green stalk. Slice them to your own taste!
  • Unless the cherries and strawberries are really sweet, put them in a bowl and sprinkle the sugar over it, add the Pimms or brandy and mix.
  • Leave for around an hour at room temperature.
  • This allows the juices to be released, to form a sauce.
  • Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks.
  • Spoon over the fruits and serve with the sprig of mint and a few strawberries to garnish.
  • Eat!
