Cherries are divided into two groups: Sweet cherry and Sour cherry. Big currants belong to sweet cherries. They are mostly eaten as fresh fruit. Sour cherries are used for pies, marmalades and preserves.
Tip: Make a simple compote by boiling water, sugar and cherry. Boil until the berries become soft. Do not mess with sugar and do not boil for too long. Allow standing for a while without heat.
