Cream Cheese Fritters

It’s officially summer ­– the season to enjoy fresh summer fruit, al fresco dining and BBQs in the garden.

With English cherries at the height of their season this month, we’ve created a recipe to showcase them in all their glory.

Our cream cheese fritters with English summer cherries and pure maple syrup from Quebec make a lovely breakfast, brunch or dessert. The delicate creaminess of the cheese offsets the rich sweetness of the cherries and maple syrup to create a light yet indulgent summer treat.
